Traffic Concerns Outreach Forums
City of San Mateo staff, like our residents, drive these streets and have seen a significant increase in traffic over the past year as a result in an upswing in the economy. This condition is frustrating to all who use our local and regional roadway system.
Through the end of May 2016, Public Works will be holding a series of bi-weekly Traffic Concerns Outreach Forums
to gather feedback and suggestions from the community regarding traffic concerns throughout the City.
About Public Works Traffic
When traffic engineers view roadways, they see more than asphalt and cars. They see a network of roads that intersect and form an overall transit system. This system has many different kinds of streets and each type of street is aimed at supporting different levels of traffic and types of vehicles.
In short, not all roads can accommodate industrial vehicles, heavy traffic, or high speeds. Roads are built for the traffic they are designed to support.
In order to best manage our network of roadways, we have a host of traffic-related tools and programs at our disposal to help guide us in our daily decisions. We do our best to respond to individual requests while ensuring safe traffic flow and parking availability for the community.
