Thanks to Chris for posting this. The long list of facts certainly demonstrates how unappealing the project is. But there are a few facts that stand out as really awful. After enduring "more than two years" of construction with massive traffic delay, what would Pacificans get? Answer: only slightly improved traffic flow followed by a return to the same traffic delay we have right now only a few years later.

Let me emphasize -- Level of service (LOS) F is really bad -- and LOS E is bad but somewhat less bad. Right now at the Fassler and Reina del Mar intersections during rush hour, we experience LOS E and F. Right after it is completed, Caltrans' massive project would improve traffic only slightly (still LOS E and F), and soon thereafter traffic would degrade to its present condition. I cannot understand how our City Council can possibly believe this would be good for Pacifica.

The problem with Caltrans is that it did not study the alternatives -- thoroughly at all, or in combinations.

There are several combinations that might work, but one is what is now a standard high-tech traffic data system in combination with staggered school times.
