Public Support for Changing
the Proposed Greenwood Bridge
|In September, 2005, over 200 people
responded to an email alert on the Greenwood Bridge Permit by going to a
web page and entering their personal information to endorse the following
letter to the Coastal Commission:
Preserving the scenic values and the historic, rural character of coastal
Highway 1 is very important to me.
I urge you to require Caltrans to amend the Greenwood Bridge replacement
1. Provide a sidewalk protected by an ST-10 railing.
2. Design a new outer pedestrian rail that includes arches.
3. Narrow the shoulders from 8 feet to 4 feet.
I urge that you require Caltrans to adhere to these recommendations on all
future coastal Highway 1 bridges.
I further support Alternative 2 for construction, eliminating the need for
the environmentally and visually destructive retaining walls.
Thank you for your consideration.
