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.

Public Meetings

Tree Workshop – Feb. 9, 2023

Caltrans will host an El Camino Real Tree Workshop on Thursday, February 9, 2023 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm in the Sequoia Room at the Burlingame Community Center (850 Burlingame Ave., Burlingame, CA 94010). The purpose of the workshop is to gather community input, including on the project design for the replacement tree planting.

Since the publication of the FEIR/FEIS in April 2022, Caltrans has been collaborating with the City of Burlingame, Burlingame Historical Society, and other partners to plan the necessary roadway improvements while incorporating community input from previous public meetings and comment periods.

The Tree Workshop is the culmination of outreach and design efforts to-date and will tie together previously discussed project elements, constraints, and feedback. The workshop is also an exciting opportunity for community members to shape how El Camino Real will look and feel for future generations.
