    Caltrain to delay traffic? Great. Don’t like it? pay for grade separation out of gas tax–presumably eliminating grade crossings is a “highway improvement”.

    An overview of grade separations: http://caltrain-hsr.blogspot.com/2012/12/grade-separation-decadal-view.html

    I’d say several of the listed intersections shouldn’t see grade separations yet. Palo Alto would love to have those intersections grade separated for two tracks so quad tracking (which is most important through Palo Alto) would be impossible.

    This will be a huge fight. Caltrain has no reason to budge. CHSR may get involved as well.

    The Golden Gate Bridge is closed this weekend? Awesome! It’ll be so nice to have a pleasant weekend in SF without all of that riff-raff from Marin County in the city! Fewer speeding Bimmers to dodge, fewer Cervelos and Sevens plodding along on the roadways. Like a little slice of heaven right here!
