Our deepest sympathies to the family of Shahriar Rahimzadeh as they deal with the aftermath of this tragic accident. Through the news media and other venues, many have let their emotions rise to the surface as they discuss the circumstances surrounding the tragedy. This is natural. The circumstances surrounding the accident remain under investigation by the Police Department and the Town is not able at this time to discuss the details. However, in light of the ongoing discussion about improvements to State Highway, Route 82, El Camino Real, we are providing the attached background information on current conditions as well as the status of proposed or planned improvements. The Town has proposed and will continue to pursue improvements along the portion of El Camino Real that runs through the Town’s boundaries. This recent tragedy is another reason the Town will not be letting up its pressure on Caltrans to speed up the development process for proposed projects along the corridor.
