Hillside Boulevard, a principal north-south arterial through the Town of Colma, spans approximately 1.5 miles from the Daly City city limit to the South San Francisco city limit. CSG was involved with Phase 1 of the APWA Award-winning Hillside Boulevard Improvements project from the master planning stages (which included study sessions with the various department directors, public meetings, and two presentations to the City Council) to final design and construction. During the master planning stages of the project, CSG conducted traffic studies and effectively communicated with stakeholders, Town staff and City Council to present a design that was both aesthetically pleasing and consistent with the Town’s General Plan and Master Sign Program. CSG worked closely with the Town’s Planning Department to deliver a conceptual design that incorporated all elements of a “complete streets” project, including sidewalks, lighting, and bike lanes. Design elements incorporated sheltered left turns to act as traffic calming measures, additional street parking, continuous bike lanes, a continuous sidewalk where none existed, curb ramps, and bio-retention areas or “rain gardens.” Two traffic signal modifications were completed to match the new layout and bring existing signals up to current standards. The design incorporated a retrofit to all intersections and pedestrian access points throughout the corridor to meet ADA compliance. In addition, the entire length of roadway was rehabilitated by full-depth reconstruction.
