"the project because it was coming in at "three times the original cost" of $3 million... when the tunnel under Old Middlefield Way was added to the project in order to protect pedestrians from cars speeding off Highway 101"

Put up a traffic light. Hec, put up too, and save some money by not building a tunnel!

The city's sidewalks are horrible, and they frequently claim that they do not have money to fix them. Yet the have $14 million to build a bridge?

I can't believe this baloney. Fix what you got before you build more!
