U.S.FIGHTER JETS AND DRONES CONTINUE TO POUND ISLAMICSTATE MILITANTS IN IRAQ

To help get more cars off the road, SanMateo is working to build a pedestrian andbicyclist overpass to make crossingHighway 101 on Hillsdale Boulevard safer. The City Council met Monday to discussthe Hillsdale Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridgeproject that would create a separate path forpeople to cross Hillsdale Boulevard withouthaving to encounter oncoming vehiclesentering or exiting Highway 101. “There’s a number of reasons for the proj-ect,” said Aaron Lam, associate engineer inthe city’s Public Works Department. “It’s amode shift, a way to get people out of theircars. So ease up a little bit on traffic, it’salso a healthier mode of travel.”The proposed 1.2-mile bridge would cre-ate a safer multi-use connection from theHillsdale Caltrain Station and the LosPrados and Lakeshore neighborhoods. Theproposed bridge would begin near theKaiser Medical Center at Bay Meadows andend at the Norfolk intersection, Lam said. The city is also considering adding addi-tional access connections at Hillsdale Courton the west side and La Selva Street to theeast, Lam said. As the project is in the Caltrans right-of-way, the city is in the midst of preparingdocuments to prove the necessity of theproject and staff hopes to submit its pro-posal to Caltrans later this week, Lam said. If approved, the city will begin an envi-ronmental review process before any actualdesign work is done, Lam said.
