The Mission Street Streetscape Project is a pedestrian safety and street beautification project for the Mission Street corridor between Crocker Avenue and Templeton Avenue. The project will widen the existing 3-foot concrete median to approximately 7-foot, install median landscaping, and an irrigation system. The median noses will be extended further into the intersection at Wilson Street, Goethe Street, Evergreen Avenue, and Rice Street. Pedestrian improvements include bulb-outs, curb ramps, high visibility crosswalks, improved pedestrian signage, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, and pedestrian streetlights.
The improvements help to achieve the City’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries. The bulb outs, wider medians, and extending the median noses into the intersection will shorten crosswalk distances and provide a pedestrian refuge at the median. The narrower vehicle lanes also have a calming effect and encourage motorists to drive slower. The pedestrian streetlight and rectangular rapid flashing beacons will enhance pedestrian visibility at the crosswalks.
Construction is anticipated to start in November 2022 and is estimated for completion by Spring 2023.
This project is funded by San Mateo County Transportation Authority Measure A and Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 grants.
