shoreline blvd does not need 10,000 dirt trucks.
how about the dirt broker deliver the stuff by barge from the bay side

The dirt comes from nearby development projects, which are presumably on land. Most likely less environmental impact to take the dirt straight to the park in trucks, than to truck it to a port with the right loading facilities, load it on barges and bring the barges around.
I'm glad we are restoring the wetlands, both for wildlife and for increased flood protection.

1) Access from the street is most likely via the foot of San Antonio, not Shoreline
2)The Bay is much too shallow to allow barge access, plus the source of the dirt is likely a site where it has to go on trucks in the first place
