Circulate San Diego has published a letter today objecting to two road widening measures before the Infrastructure Committee: expanding Mission Bay Drive Bridge from four to six lanes and widening Miramar Road to eight lanes with Class 2 bike lanes. Widening roads does not achieve safe neighborhoods. In fact, widening roads throughout the City has led to increased vehicular speeds and contributed to a high number of crashes in the City. These measures are antithetical to the goals of Vision Zero and the Climate Action Plan and, as such, we ask that the projects be reevaluated.
