Why does Stanford keep pushing the Alpine Road super-deluxe-sidewalk project when absolutely no one wants it and it will do zero to improve pedestrian or bicycle safety on that road.

If Stanford really wants to improve the community, they should go ahead with the trail connecting Old Page Mill Road, under I-280, to Arastradero Road. The current bike lane on the *left* side of Page Mill Expressway is a major safety hazard for the bicyclists that have to navigate through speeding car traffic at the I-280 on-ramps. A bike path that avoids this interchange without going miles out of the way would be a major blessing to Midtown residents and Stanford students trying to reach the Arastradero Preserve or Foothill Park.
