Smart Corridor Project Will Slow Traffic on El Camino Real

Between Monday to Friday, Caltrans will work on installing an Intelligent Transportation System.

As part of the Smart Corridor project, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin installing new traffic management tools this week along Route 82 (El Camino Real).

The project will require lane closures along El Camino Real - mostly through Belmont - starting Monday morning.

Caltrans crews will be installing an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) system that provides traffic management tools to manage traffic on local streets and State Route 82. These improvements will include a fiber-optic communication system, interconnection of local and state traffic signals, trailblazer signs, message signs, vehicle detection systems and fixed cameras.

This system will run from the City of San Bruno to Redwood City.

The lane closure times and locations for Monday are as follows:

Monday, March 18, one lane closed, Northbound, Route 82 between Ralston Avenue & 3rd Avenue. 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
