    I ride on San Tomas occasionally on the section being widened. I asked and am told that they are going to widen the roadway 5 feet plus get rid of the median to get the extra lanes, and the bike shoulder will still exist.

    That stretch is pretty good for riding with a wide shoulder, but there is an issue in that there are several drainage grates that are not really very pleasant on a bicycle. If they are reconstructing the shoulder, here is an opportunity to improve that. Removal of the trees will actually be an upgrade, because they are Euks that drop horrendous amounts of debris.
