Bicycle and pedestrian bridge over Highway 101


Hillsdale Boulevard in San Mateo

Insert Bridge Here!

Insert bridge here!

SVBC is working with the City of San Mateo to ensure a great new bike and pedestrian bridge adjacent to Hillsdale Boulevard over Highway 101. The Highway is a major barrier to east-west connectivity and the existing Hillsdale Boulevard overcrossing is the only one in the area; the next closest are 2 miles to the north or 2.5 miles to the south. The bridge would provide a Class I overcrossing for people who want to bike and walk away from vehicle traffic, yet will still connect to existing bike facilities.
