Reduce traffic in The Village of La Jolla, CA.

This petition had 571 supporters

The traffic at the intersection of Torrey Pines Road, Hidden Valley Road and La Jolla Parkway has reached a breaking point. In the morning, Hidden Valley backs up, sometimes all the way to Via Capri. And in the evening, everything else does - La Jolla Parkway and Torrey Pines Road in both directions. On the weekends, the beach traffic on La Jolla Parkway can extend for over a mile.

In addition to the daily commuting issues this bottleneck causes, because of the undeveloped land that is Mt. Soledad, The Village lives in a serious fire threat zone.  And beyond that, The Village also runs the risk of  earthquakes, severe coastal weather and even terrorism.  The unique geography of La Jolla, bound by mountains and the ocean, offers only a small number of ways in and out of town.  Should a disaster strike our community,  evacuating or bringing in aid to La Jolla would be next to impossible.  

We need to complete construction of the bridge to span the La Jolla Parkway and join La Jolla Scenic Drives North and South. In addition a ramp off of La Jolla Parkway should also be built to allow access to the I5 North. The bridge would greatly reduce the amount of traffic passing through the bottleneck as would an I5 access ramp.
