Wow, a $6 million tunnel. That's practical. If we're going to use the kind of logic that says one pedestrian died in the last 22 years let's build a $6 million tunnel, well.... Dozens have died in traffic accidents since then so let's just ban the automobile.

For $8.4 million, Sunnyvale is getting two bicycle/pedestrian bridges over freeways (101 & 237) that are wider than Central Expressway. A bridge over Central Expressway should be less expensive than the proposed tunnel.

I believe a bridge at this location was not possible because of space considerations on the San Antonio station side of Central-not enough room. Otherwise, I'm sure a bridge would have been an acceptable compromise, since the city has approved bridges for the Stevens Creek Trail overpasses, etc.
