1nCEBrielle: You are absolutely correct. Plus, if you look at the County Trails Manual, the Bike Manual, the Vehicle Code provisions and the AASHTO guidelines there is no way that what is proposed could be constructed in accordance with those requirements. If Ladera wants a safe way to bike to Stanford, a trail could be constructed by connecting Aliso Way or Andeta Way to Stanford property where roadways already exist on Webb Ranch and where Ansel Lane goes UNDER the freeway, and come out through Stanford Hills Park to the approx. 4 acre meadow at the back of Stanford's Buck Estate. This would connect with the pathway opposite Safeway (and the bus stop) and thence to the bike path down Sand Hill Road to Stanford. Virtually no construction would be required. All the wishes of Ladera residents would be more than fulfilled, and the SWA residents would be happy.
