According to the City of San Mateo – This project will eliminate the partial interchange and create a single, full access interchange at Peninsula Avenue and Airport Boulevard. This will result in an improvement to the safety and traffic operations of the southbound US-101 ramps and the intersection of East Poplar Avenue and North Amphlett Boulevard along with providing improvements to the bicycle and pedestrian movements through the intersection of Peninsula Avenue and North Bayshore Boulevard. This project is currently in the project approval and environmental document (PA&ED) phase. Because of the large interest in the traffic portion of the PA&ED from both Burlingame and San Mateo residents, the City of San Mateo decided to do the analysis for this portion first. Currently, the consultant for this project is completing the traffic analysis to determine where there may be impacts from the proposed project. Once the City has those results, they will conduct an outreach meeting to share the findings. As of right now, the City is expecting that meeting to take place in the early part of 2018. The PA&ED phase of the project is currently underway and is expected to be completed in late 2018.
