Lyon-Hoag & Adjacent Neighborhoods Traffic Calming Improvements
The City of Burlingame strives to maintain a livable community and continually seeks to improve the quality of life for its residents. A comprehensive traffic study was requested by members of the Lyon-Hoag and adjacent neighborhoods to investigate a variety of concerns such as speeding, parking, and cut-through traffic. TJKM, a professional transportation consulting firm, was hired by the City to investigate any issues raised by the residents and to recommend any traffic calming solutions that may be feasible.
Traffic Calming Studies & Recommendations - Report & Appendices
Phase 1: On February 2021, the City completed Phase 1 of the Lyon-Hoag & Adjacent Neighborhoods Traffic Calming Improvements project. Phase 1 consisted of quick build traffic calming improvements including, but was not limited to the installation of centerline, edge line, high visibility crosswalks, striped medians, trial traffic circles, trial bulbouts, modular trial speed cushions, and street signs. The project also widened the existing 4-feet bike lane on Howard Avenue to a 5-feet bike lane.
The implemented traffic calming measures are to address concerns of cut-through traffic and speeding through the neighborhood. These improvements are continuously being evaluated and reviewed for positive and adverse impacts, adjustments or additional measures, and future permanent installations.
Phase 2: Implementation of Phase 2 of the Lyon-Hoag & Adjacent Neighborhoods Traffic Calming Improvements project will be determined by the successful outcome of current improvements and future City fiscal year budgeting.
