NBC-13 wants to know what we think about an elevated Highway 280. Actually, the poll question is, “Will an elevated highway solve the 280 traffic problem?”
I think a world of no. Thought so before, but rapidly increasing gas prices make the idea of encouraging more development further from the city center even worse. And adding capacity will encourage development, likely to the point that traffic will actually be worse by the time the project is completed. Just think of it — even more SUVs sitting bumper-to-bumper spewing emissions into our already out of compliance air.
