Construction will start next month on a $1.3-million intersection improvement project at Santa Rita Road and Stoneridge Drive in Pleasanton, another in a series of multi-million-dollar road and bridge building programs now under way to extend Stoneridge Drive east to El Charro Road and Livermore.

I'm hoping that government works as usual on this project, that is more delays, more environmental studies required, etc. A similar pace as the one on Stanley, two years to make almost no improvements.

The city council and Zone 7 are both meeting tonite. They should discuss as part of the improvements to this intersection, an offset curb for the Wheels' buses to drive into to load and unload passengers on southbound Santa Rita. As it is now, the buses come to a complete stop in the right hand lane causing traffic to back-up into the intersection. The speed limit is 45mph. A bus coming to a quick stop right after the intersection catches a lot of drivers off guard and unprepared. When turning right from Stroneridge to Santa Rita, the trees block the view of a stopped bus. A driver making a right turn has to contend with a stopped bus appearing in their face unexpectedly. I am sure Zone 7 would donate a small amount of their pumping station property so that this bus stop could be made safe.

As a resident living close to Stoneridge Drive, I fear for the safety of children/parents as they pick their children up @ Mohr Elementary School??? I see an accident waiting to happen, especially on rainy days, when the carpools to pick up their children @ Mohr backs up on Stoneridge Drive. Drivers please be aware of the 2 schools and 2 parks on Stoneridge Drive, along with the fact that this is a residential community, not a Freeway!! The speed limit on Stoneridge Drive is not 45 MPH either......

It's about time!!! What's next, a human chain across Stoneridge? The threats of not voting for City Council Members and not Re-Electing the Mayor won't work any longer. The extension was part of the General Plan and had made it past the challenges by the community. This has been approved and funded. This is the first step in reducing inner city traffic. It will take a load off of the collection of traffic at Santa Rita and 580, as well as Santa Rita and Valley. Next should be a connection between Stanley and El Charro. Now with the speed limits increased, this city will remain a great place to live.

100 year flood plain should be the least worry of senior citizens living at the assisted living center.
High traffic and be run over by cars from alternate 580 and outlet mall traffic should be the greater worry in my opinion.
Not only inner traffic in PLS would not be alleviated, we will have additional traffic of Dublin, Livermore, outlet mall and 580 commuters in PLS due to this extension.
Our school kids and citizens will be at higher risk. But who cares about that. City of PLS will have additional revenue due to Busch property. Also, PLS motorcycle cops can hide behind trees and write speeding tickets on commuters day in and day out. Another source of revenue. More PLS revenue, higher pension for the PLS city works and cops.
