Scene of bike fatality to get better bike lane

Funds for Alpine Road bike lane at I-280 will not come from the county Transportation Authority

Safety is expected to improve for westbound bicyclists on Alpine Road as they pass under Interstate 280, but the $175,000 needed to create a green-colored bike lane in that spot's complex flow of traffic won't be coming from the agency usually associated with county highway projects -- the San Mateo County Transportation Authority.

Mr. Horsley USED to represent this area. Now, unfortunately we have Rose Jacobs Gibson. Supervisor Horsley has been extremely helpful to the best of his ability with respect to at least trying to get some action on Alpine Road. The small amount for the bike lane improvement where a woman lost her life is unfortunate. With the onslaught of trucks and Stanford traffic along Alpine it is only a matter of time before more fatalities occur.
