Changes to Ross Road have been a long time coming. In the future can we please get such changes right the first time?

I know this is not about Ross Rd, but does anyone know if the previously planned work on East Charleston in the area of Louis, Fabian, San Antonio, will be conducted? And please, I am not asking for a forum on the benefits/etc of this project, just its status.

Giants fan here, but unlike most of the rabid diehards I know, I was happy to see the Dodgers win. California now has two championship teams. And I was happy to see Joc do so well. Traded to the Giants, maybe?

We don't want a bike boulevard for the spandex clad, carbon fiber riding elite. We don't want stop signs at the Ross/Meadow roundabout. That is Mountain View stupidity. Remove the poorly designed Roundabout, or condemn and remove the corner properties and erect a real roundabout. Put the stop signs, if you must, on Ross and not Meadow. Critical Mass can get away with smashing car windshields in SF, Don't let the bike nazis in Palo Alto suffocate traffic. There is a pointless "closed to through traffic" barrier at Lewis and Ross that one single citizen caused to be erected because his 90 lb child could not be trained to cross a street responsibly used by 2,000 lb cars. Physics, people! That barrier has been hit at least twice in the lat three months, I would be happy to testify against the city in any legal action since the road furniture makes even walking on the sidewalk dangerous. Stop the anti-car stock and create a public transportation carrot, but we can't afford the carrot.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
