"Traffic lanes will be closed going northbound on Miranda, from the Palo Alto VA Healthcare System to near Page Mill, and on Junipero Serra from Page Mill to Alpine during construction"

The city should consider keeping these lanes closed permanently as part of their plan to go on a "road diet". This will increase the number of people that walk/bike instead of using their cars and bring us closer to the city's goal of walkable nighborhoods.
