In Old Palo Alto, something to talk about

Original post made on Nov 23, 2011

Last Halloween, Old Palo Alto resident Catherine Debs launched a beautification project in her neighborhood aimed at bringing people together. The creations, centered on a traffic median, have become the talk of the town. Photo by Veronica Weber/Palo Alto Online.

Cheaper to replace a questionable pipeline than to replace a neighborhood.

As a resident of Charleston Rd, I would appreciate updates on work being done to plan my route. It took 30 minutes recently to travel from Alma to San Antonio on Charleston Rd. Surely there is a way to give residents of the Charleston corridor a "traffic update" for potential delays........ I know the work is essential for our safety, however, given the high volume of traffic in the corridor a system needs to be in place to create detours for certain times of the day to avoid gridlock.

Wow!! Living in Charleston Gardens next to the section of pipeline 109 that comes in from Mountain View, this article does not exactly fill me with much confidence.

I just wish they could do the work in 2012 and not wait 'till 2013; I feel like I'm living on a time bomb. Anyway, thanks to Pat Burt for pushing PG&E, line 109 obviously needs some immediate attention.

As for traffic delays, PG&E can delay the traffic all they want to make gas line 109 safer ASAP.

I can't say I am comfortable with the line that runs past El Carmelo school.

Line 109 runs right outside my door. On my side walk is all the 'graffiti' the workers are using to illustrate where everything is. I hope they do a good job and there are no missteps, I like my things.
