3 Feet for Safety Act

Printer-friendly version

Since September 2014, it has been State law (California Vehicle Code section 21760) for drivers to maintain a minimum 3-foot buffer when passing a bicyclist in the same direction.  The law is designed to reduce car-bicycle crashes by reminding drivers to give bicyclists more safe space when passing.  A 3-foot passing distance gives bicyclists, motorists and law enforcement a clear sense of what is safe.  If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re giving a bicyclist enough space, it’s best to change lanes before passing them.  For more information about this State law, please visit https://bikeeastbay.org/GiveMeThree.

The Brisbane Police Department also made a video to explain this law.  Check it out on their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BrisbanePD .

Construction on Bayshore Now Starts 5/1

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Thursday, May 11, 12:30pm - The Cold In-Place Recycling contractor is on schedule to complete their resurfacing work by the end of today.  Crews will return next week to stripe the roadway.  Please note: the posted speed limit in the construction area is 25 mph.  We're nearing the end of this project - thank you to the public for your patience as this project is completed!  Should you have any questions about the work, please contact the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

UPDATE: Thursday, May 4, 10:30am - The most impactful part of the paving work on Bayshore has been completed early, thanks to the nice, warm weather we've experienced this week!  Crews will still be on-site today and tomorrow as well as next week to complete the work and stripe the roadway.  Thanks for your patience!

****************

Cold In-Place Recycling work is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 1st.

The City’s contractor, Interstate Grading and Paving, and their subcontractor, Pavement Recycling Systems, are scheduled to begin the Cold-in-Place Recycling (CIR) work on Bayshore Blvd. from approximately 600 ft. south of Old County Road to the southern city limits, starting next Monday, May 1st.  Because of the curing time required for this sustainable, greenhouse gas emission-reducing method of rehabilitating existing deteriorated pavement, we have allowed the contractor to close the lane they are working in from the hours of 7 am to 6 pm.  Typically, we only allow lane closures on Bayshore Blvd. outside of commute times, i.e. between 9 am and 4 pm, so we do anticipate some delays, and are encouraging motorists to use alternate routes if possible.  The CIR work is anticipated to take four to five days, one day or morning to test their method, and one day for each of the travel lanes on Bayshore (two each northbound and two each southbound).
 
The CIR operation requires a “train” of several piece of equipment that is approximately 150 ft. in length (see right).  When this “train” crosses the intersections of Bayshore Blvd. and San Bruno Ave., traffic will be delayed for a period of time.  Again, we encourage people to take alternate routes should they not wish to be delayed.
 
Emergency access will be provided as needed.

Thank you for your patience as this project is completed.  The result will be a nice, smooth, and nicely-surfaced Bayshore Blvd.!
