The bumpiest arterial road in Palo Alto is definitely San Antonio Road between Middlefield Road and H.101. The tree roots of the stone pine trees have not only raised the roadbed up but in several places the road surface has split open.

Yes, the City has done a great job with San Antonio Road between Middlefield and Alma (Central Expressway) but they need to finish the job to H.101 before there are any more serious accidents.

Meanwhile the truck drivers say it is too bumpy to drive on so they use East Charleston to get through Palo Alto.
