Ed Lee’s I-280 Take Down

 

San Francisco mayor Ed Lee has big plans for the part of highway 280 that ends in San Francisco. Namely to tear it down.

Mayor Lee will soon reveal plans that would take down the northern most section of I-280 and make way for an underground rail tunnel through the area, as well as a station that would be located between AT&T Ball Park and the proposed Warriors stadium. Caltrain, and eventually high speed rail, would use the station, and the area where the highway currently exists would be converted to housing developments. The price tag on his proposal is sure to be in the billions, but the prospect of additional housing in the city as well as a prime location for the rail station make this an opportunity that Lee is pushing strongly.

Vote here if you think the I-280 should be taken down and made way for housing and a Caltrain station.

    I think that Lee is not thinking about how many people this would impact as well as the traffic. What havoc it would cause. Is he thinking to cut off the rest of the surrounding cities.
    The freeway should be left alone. Spending billions of dollars is ridiculous, especially when San Francisco has not finished up the bus station on Mission.
    Lee your no mayor, just a man who thinks he can play with the city’s peoples money.
    LEAVE I-280 ALONE!!!!!
