It is good news to see this progress.

The underpass is very sorely missed. Parking is at a premium at the end of San Antonio as those of us who would have used the underpass now drive and there are probably even more using the Baylands since the start of the pandemic than before.

However, I do think there is going to be many who will drive and park nearby to use this bridge for access to the Baylands. I do not for a minute suspect it will be only those from south PA who will use it. Remember the mess at Foothills? I suspect many more parking problems as a result of this new bridge.

I am looking forward to the annual bike/ped traffic jam to Shoreline, next July 4. Almost as fun as Bike Party.

Also, there's a lovely new paved access to the bridge from E. Meadow along Adobe Creek. I wish more of the Palo Alto Bayland trails were paved. The bridge will be a great cycling route to head over to Mt. View's Bayland trails.....not so great for Palo Alto unless you like riding on rutted trails with rough gravel
