The Terrible Condition of Leucadia's Hwy101
The entire strip of Leucadia's historic 101 coast highway is in horrible condition. It is plagued by large cracks and small potholes and scared by poor patch jobs. The entire strip needs to be repaved and repainted.
Thousands of cars, trucks, motorcycles and buses use Leucadia's coast highway. Everyday the highway slips into further disrepair and this in turn, puts extra wear and tear on our tires and lowers the fuel efficiency of our vehicles. The poor driving conditions also create extra noise pollution, making sidewalk dining unpleasant (the aggressive train horns aggravates this as well).
This Thursday evening at city hall is the second major Leucadia Streetscape workshop. I am interested to see what concepts are proposed for our beloved coast highway. Hopefully we won't have to wait too many years for improvements to be made.
The Leucadia Blvd/Hwy101 intersection can't wait much longer, it needs to be repaved and repainted ASAP.
