As buildings rise, traffic slows

Multistory buildings have started to climb upward in the San Antonio Shopping Center's redevelopment, and traffic along El Camino Real is feeling the pinch from a closed lane.

Allow for a little extra time if you're heading northbound toward the intersection of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road in coming days.

Wood skeletons are just beginning to sketch out the first buildings of the massive project, which is ultimately intended to include large retailers, a Safeway grocery store, boutiques, office space, restaurants and 330 residential units.

And that stretch of El Camino isn't the only area affected in coming weeks. The California Department of Transportation began work Monday (Aug. 27) on an asphalt revamp for much of El Camino stretching from Grant Road south to Lawrence Expressway.

Expect multiple closed southbound lanes from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. weekdays through the fall. Northbound lanes are scheduled to get the same treatment in the spring.
