  1. This is why we need to extend the Santiago Creek Bike Trail from the I-5 underpass along the creek to Flower St. – a safe off-road trail that avoids the collision of bicyclists and cars. The NIMBYS who oppose this route are supporting an on-road bike trail that would put the trail on Main Street and would cross the very same I-5 on-ramp at which this latest victim was killed. Wherever possible, bike trails should be off-road trails to protect bicyclists.

    1. Wont happen until the resident give up their property and beside too many hoodlum and druggies walking /hanging out under the freeway
