82 El Camino Real Roadway Renewal

The El Camino Real Roadway Renewal team is carefully assessing a critical section of State Route 82 that stretches through the city of Burlingame and touches Hillsborough, San Mateo and Millbrae. This stretch of El Camino Real features the Howard-Ralston Tree Rows, which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the roadway, reduce localized flooding, improve visibility, and upgrade pedestrian infrastructure to comply with ADA standards.

Environmental Review

The final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement, Final Section 4(f) Evaluation, and Record of Decision (FEIR/FEIS) was published in April 2022. A digital version of the FEIR/FEIS is available at www.ecralternatives.com. Hard copy versions of the FEIR/FEIS are available at:

  • Burlingame Public Library (480 Primrose Road, Burlingame, CA 94010)
  • Caltrans District 4 Office (111 Grand Avenue, Oakland, CA 94612)

The project is now in the design stage.

Public Outreach

From 2020 to 2023, Caltrans hosted a total of six public meetings. In 2023, we held a Tree Workshop as the culmination of outreach and design efforts. At Burlingame On the Avenue in August 2023, visitors to the Caltrans booth gave input on special features such as the planned time capsule, history plaque walk, and community benches. We also presented on the project right of way and encroachment issues at the Burlingame City Council meeting on July 5, 2023 and the San Mateo City Council Meeting on August 21, 2023. 

In July 2021, we hosted a virtual and an in-person meeting to share information about our Draft Environmental Document. In 2020, we held an Educational Public Open House and two Scoping meetings. We sincerely appreciate your participation and the feedback we’ve received at the public meetings hosted to date.

An archive of materials presented at these meetings are available for your convenience as well as additional project information including frequently asked questions. View the project microsite here: ECRAlternatives.com
