what happens when the traffic study comes back saying that the increased activity from the development will bring with it increased traffic activity and grid lock?

As it is now, southbound traffic on El Camino stops in the left lane as cars attempt to turn left into North bound traffic to get on to Howard. Sometimes it's not too bad and two or three cars can cross during one traffic light cycle. What happens when it is consistently backed up with four or five cars trying to turn there? It won't take too many before you have gridlock on an important artery.

The solution of course is to make an extra left turn lane on south bound El Camino, which would require widening the road there on the east side, eating into the parking lot. If this solution is determined as I predict it will, it will change everything.


I heard the front end manager Nancy telling someone that all of the Burlingame employees would be sent to 4 other stores while they rebuild. She said it would take 10 months
