Crashing down

Update 4 p.m.: It's been quite a day on the coast. Trees have been reported down across the region, taking power lines in Pacifica and blocking some of the Coastside's most important roads.

By 1 p.m., Highway 92 had been completely blocked in two locations. The first problem was a crash near the top of the hill at Highway 35. Later a eucalyptus tree fell over the road near Ox Mountain Landfill. However, Caltrans gave the all-clear on Highway 92 by about 3:30 p.m.

Trees down, sink holes, mudslides--these outages on 92 will never stop, because how could they? It just makes me think how nice it would be look down on the emergency road crews and all the backed-up traffic, as we glide 100 feet overhead in a zero-emissions high-capacity commuter gondola that connects the Coastside shuttle bus terminal to the Samtrans and private commuter bus hub at Crystal Springs. Momentum for the Coastside Skyway gondola project is building, folks! Anybody else ready to quit being held hostage to the Route 92 roulette wheel? It's time to make mass transit history, and set an example for the new age of green cable transit nationwide.
