    I’m obviously an outspoken critic of the Central Subway, but I’ve come to grips that it will be *built* (or at least started) and am now working to get a North Beach station before Super Bowl LXXV. However, the fact that they haven’t even started drilling and they are already so so close to going over budget should give EVERYONE pause. This project will top $2 billion. I hope not, but I can’t see how they won’t run into complications and delays once they start boring.

    Re: Concord Considers Reducing Speed Limit from 45 to 40 MPH on Deadly Treat Boulevard

    Does anybody really think 5 mph is sufficient? To make a real difference, it has to drop at least 10 mph.

    The first rule of holes: stop digging.

  • I find it so incredibly deliciously telling that people will go super ballistic and fight tooth and nail over the loss of X number of free parking spots on Fell or Oak or Masonic, or the addition of meters in the Dogpatch or the Mission, but when we have a parking lot that is pricier than the metered spots, a neighborhood will be so blase about those spots that they will raise money to turn the parking spots into a park.
