Almost 300 users of the Coastal Trail have signed this petition requesting that the MCC support moving forward with the project to replace the Arroyo de en Medio bridge in its current location according to the plans submitted by the San Mateo County Public Works.
These signatures represent an overwhelming sentiment by users of the Coastal Trail to replace the bridge immediately in its current location.
The signature collectors have a few observations from collecting these signatures:
- Almost everybody feels the bridge should be replaced in its current position. They do not want to wait 7 to 10 years (the time the County planners said would be required to find alternatives). For some, their children will be adults by that time. For others who are elderly, they will not be able to utilize that alternative at all.
- The current configuration of traveling through the Miramar neighborhood on surface roads is very dangerous. The roads are congested and the intersections offer many opportunities for pedestrians, bicycle riders and cars to collide. The only place to avoid this danger is the current path over the creek in its current location.
- The public holds a high degree of concern over the impact to the environment. They support longer term planning. However, the public feels delaying replacement of the bridge, in its current location, while starting a long term planning process, makes little sense. They feel that their access to the beach and the coast is being denied.
The petition indicates that the MCC should be proactively looking for ways to help the County secure the necessary approvals to complete this project , and tell the California Coastal Commission to approve the project.
We need you to express your support for replacing the bridge in its current location by signing this petition!
