Delaware Streetscape Project
The Department of Public Works is implementing "Complete Streets" improvements to Delaware Street, Sunnybrae Blvd. to Charles Ln. The Delaware Streetscape Project is a part of the 2002 San Mateo Rail Corridor Transit Oriented Development Plan. This Plan, studied and approved by City Council, encourages and provides guidance for the creation of world class transit-oriented development (TOD) within a half-mile radius of the Hillsdale and Hayward Park Caltrain station areas.
“Complete Streets” is a nationwide effort to create streets that can accommodate all users — pedestrians, bicyclists, cars and mass transit.
|APRIL 2013 Update: Work to Commence Week of April 1st!
Golden Bay Construction, the contractor selected to perform the improvements on the Delaware Streetscape Improvement Project, will begin sawcutting the street this week, with demolition scheduled the week of April 8th. (We originally reported work would begin last week.)
Anticipated Work Hours
8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday
Anticipated Construction Impacts
Typical to most street construction projects, you will experience the following impacts:
- Temporary lane closures
- Delays when traveling thru construction area
- Limited access to driveway for brief periods
Golden Bay Construction and the on-site construction inspector will work with residents on any short term impacts.
Widening the sidewalk and adding new lighting for pedestrian safety
Adding bike lanes
Reducing travel lanes for sustainability
Installing a new decorative railing on the 16th Avenue Channel Bridge
Providing new landscaping
Construction Community Notices
Our standard practice is to share a postcard with the impacted area 3-4 weeks in advance of the work. The contractor will post on-site signage 48 hours in advance of work commencing. Once work commences, the contractor will work with residents on any on-site questions, and we will have an inspector overseeing the work.
The Department of Public Works held two Neighborhood Open Houses -- one on July 18, 2012 and another on October 25, 2012. During the second open house, the Public Works team addressed feedback and questions received during the July 18th Open House and presented a computer traffic simulation of current and long term traffic circulation.
