crossingCPUC Places Broadway Crossing at Top of List

Please read below for an excerpt of a letter from the California Public Utilities Commission:

"A proposed decision issued last week by the CPUC puts Burlingame's Broadway crossing at the top of the state's Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Grade Separation Fund Priority List, as required by Streets and Highways Code Section 2452 .
The proposed decision will be up for adoption at the Commission's June 21 business meeting. If approved, the list will be furnished to the California Transportation Commission, which has delegated its responsibility to the California Department of Transportation, and is a mechanism to start the co-funding process with other groups, such as the JPB, CAHSRA, or local Transportation Authority.
The full text of the proposed decision is made available through the link provided below on May 21, 2018."
