Here's a link to an image of the future configuration at ECR and 92.

It's quite similar to ECR and 380.

The Daily Post lead with the real headline on the San Mateo sanctuary city consideration-- $51 Million of federal funds at risk according to the city staff, including $5 million for the 92 interchange. The Daily Journal buried the lead 10 feet under:

San Mateo staff provided a list of projects slated to receive federal money, many of which are divvied out through state or regional agencies. For example, the city currently has been awarded about $11 million for a variety of projects from street reconstruction and the State Route 92 interchange project, to parking technologies and supporting safe routes to schools, according to the report.

San Mateo is also hoping for $40 million in prospective federal funds that range from federal tax credits for construction of an affordable housing project to $35 million for a pedestrian overpass bridge, according to the report.

Aiding and Abetting Criminals and Felons Should Result in Arrest

Don't bother withholding Federal Tax money, just arrest politicians and government staff that aid and abet illegal immigrants.

It's a misdemeanor (a crime) to enter our country illegally, it's a felony (a very serious crime) to re-enter if you've been deported.

Our country has thrived through legal immigrants, natural resources and rule of law.

If a person doesn't respect our rule of law, they should be arrested. If they have already committed a crime by entering our country illegally, then they should be deported.

Enforcing the law has nothing to do with race. We have illegal immigrants from many, many different countries including England and Europe.

Neither politicians, nor government staff (you can't fund illegal immigrants), nor schools (you can't admit illegal immigrants), nor employers (you can't hire illegal immigrants) may pick and choose which laws they follow.

"It is also a felony to encourage or induce an alien to come to or reside in the U.S. knowing or recklessly disregarding the fact that the alien's entry or residence is in violation of the law. ... Convictions for aiding, abetting, or conspiracy to commit alien smuggling or harboring, carry the same penalties."

Work has begun:

Caltrans is clearing the way to begin a long-planned realignment at State Route 92 and El Camino Real — one of San Mateo’s most congested and hazardous interchanges.

Crews have begun removing trees and intermittently closing at least one off-ramp in preparation for the $22 million infrastructure project at one of San Mateo County’s most congested east-west arterials.

Prepare for a long delay and an uncertain finish. This one could end badly. On the bright side, the peninsula ave ramp is working out just fine. It is the model for KISS projects.
