Original post made on Nov 19, 2011

After blasting the project in July, City Council members were not only civil in discussing Google's plan to build car bridges over Stevens Creek trail on Tuesday, but also supportive.

I Love bridges and am open for a win-win for all. The 85/280 Cupertino has that Lovely mini suspension-like walking bridge that lights up the sky at night. Reminds me of stunning Huge bridges in Tokyo-Boston. :)

Trust the google proposed bridge designs will be architecturally a value-add as well as functionally efficient benefit for that entire area.
The 101 Shoreline exit is such a bottleneck despite the widening and new oddish 85South ramp etc. tho' i love zipping along pitying those stuck in 101N bound traffic. Took me and my carpooler more than 20 frustrating minutes just at that intersection one morning.

So let's add to the Bay views of Golden Gate+, Dumbarton, San Mateo, Bay bridges!

If it was such a great idea, why didn't the city build it. Oh yea they are broke. How much do we Google now? Free WiFi, Free bridges, how about Free Hanger One parking spot?

The public won't be able to use it for 50 years. We just get to stare at its ugliness as it ads another view ruining structure to an area we're trying to maintain as natural as possible.
Oh, and if you think the bridge will alter the natural peaceful feeling, wait until they start running BUSSES over it. Yah, that's really going to improve the peacefulness of the area. Again, as citizens, we can look(we have no choice because it will be such a dominant structure)but we cannot use. This is the first step to a massive buildup Google is doing and would like to continue to do in this important wetland environment. Google is out for Google. Don't believe the whitewashing attempt at saying the bridge will eventually belong to MV. That's 50 years from now hen its in need or repairs. Google gets the bridge, gets to use it exclusively, but when its time for it to be repaired/removed, MV gets stuck with that tab.
I smell another Occupy type movement over this one. ts a complete farce to suggest MV will benefit from this bridge. This is all about Google...the "Closed to residents for 50 years" component tells you so.
