John Daly Boulevard Streetscape Improvements Design Concept Open House

The City of Daly City is hosting a public meeting on the John Daly Boulevard Streetscape Improvements project on Tuesday, June 17, 6:30-7:30pm, at War Memorial Community Center, 6655 Mission Street, room 202/203. 

This project will improve the John Daly Boulevard corridor from Mission Street (the Top of the Hill) to Delong Street (the BART station). Improvements include the installation of bicycle lanes and/or route, a buffered sidewalk, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant features, new lighting, and new landscaping in the medians. 

This project construction costs are estimated at $3.1 million. The City has leveraged local tax dollars by securing $2 million in grants, making Daly City’s contribution approximately $1.1 million, or one-third of the total project costs. 

One of the two grants is an OneBayArea Grant (OBAG), which funds the installation of the bicycle lanes, pedestrian upgrades and amenities, lighting, landscaping, and the irrigation system to support the landscaping. The second grant is a Measure A grant, which funds the full design concept, including narrowing the center median to accommodate the new bicycles lanes, modifying traffic signals to allow for better pedestrian crossings at intersections, and installing high visibility, stamped asphalt crosswalks. 

The community is invited to attend the meeting to view the design concepts, provide input, discuss concerns, and ask questions.
