The "Dumbarton Link" is less than 1 mile, not the 27 miles that the article states. The missing section is between Bay Road in East Palo Alto and the Bayfront Expressway in Menlo Park.
Really surprised that this little trail is so controversial. It is too bad that Menlo Park is not pushing harder for this, since on the biggest user groups for this trail is Facebook employees bicycling to work from their homes in Palo Alto.

Facebook has promised to pay for half of the Dumbarton Link, if other funding could be found. If they hold up their part of the bargain, this could be a good way to stretch dollars:

Facebook should go ahead and pay for the whole thing. They should realize that Menlo Park is not interested in paying for infrastructure projects in the part of the city east of Hwy 101. East Palo Alto can't afford it. Even with their stock price tanking, this trail is still pocket change for Facebook.
