Letter: A tunnel to Stanford?

I am thrilled that Menlo Park has made a formal request to Stanford suggesting the need for a tunnel from I-280 to Campus Drive.

For years, whenever I've been on I-280 between Page Mill Road or Sand Hill Road, I've been sizing up the best dip in the hills and digging that tunnel mentally — ever since I saw the manned entry gate at an exit limited to the NASA organization on the Baltimore/Washington Parkway.

Surely Stanford has great engineers who can pull this off. It would make such a difference, not only to limit campus traffic but to speed emergency vehicles to the medical center.
