This site is home to all of the educational outreach materials presented during the Caltrans project development process. The ECR Roadway Renewal Project is a critical endeavor that will improve the function, access, and safety of El Camino Real while retaining the character of this highly-traveled corridor. The project area stretches 3 miles, between East Santa Inez Avenue and Millbrae Avenue, and encompasses uniquely challenging pavement, vegetation, sidewalk, utility, drainage, and safety issues. This particular stretch of El Camino Real is also host to the Howard-Ralston Eucalyptus Tree Rows, which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and contribute to the unique character of the corridor.

I love the eucalyptus, having grown-up here, but they definitely cause problems.*
I think it’s integral to Burlingame’s character and charm to keep the eucalyptus for which it is known.*
