In July of 2013, the Board of Supervisors approved $12.5 million from Measure A funding to redesign Middlefield Road from Pacific to 5th Avenue. The design will include the undergrounding of utilities, new street lights, and other streetscape changes. Streetscape changes approved by the North Fair Oaks Community Council and Board of Supervisors include a 3-lane roadway, wider sidewalks, and the addition of bike lanes. 

The documents included on this page outline the various studies and community outreach efforts that have taken place since 2013. For questions regarding the Middlefield Road Redesign, please contact Victor Gaitan, Outreach Coordinator, at vgaitan@smcgov.org, or 650-363-4668.

Update: The Middlefield Road Steering Committee had their final meeting on November 2, 2016, to vote on streetscape design options, including bike lanes, street trees, bulbouts, and sidewalk width. The County will seek broader community input on these options, and will present all considerations to the North Fair Oaks Community Council in early 2017. 



Construction Mitigation Plan

As we prepare for future construction on Middlefield Road in 2019 (estimated), the County of San Mateo hopes to minimize the negative impacts of construction to local businesses. The Construction Mitigation Plan outlines potential strategies that the County can look into to support local businesses during construction.

If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding the Construction Mitigation Plan, please contact: Nicholas Calderon at ncalderon@smcgov.org or 650-363-4047.


In 2015, the County facilitated another phase of the multi-part community outreach process to gain input on more specific features of the new Middlefield Road streetscape design. A series of Steering Committee meetings and Community Workshops provided opportunities for public input.

In 2014, the Board of Supervisors approved a recommendation of the Middlefield Road redesign that includes a conceptual design layout and additional reports. The recommendation was developed after a thorough community outreach process and further analysis conducted by a variety of agencies.
