COMPLAINT: MENLO PUBLIC WORKS/PD INCOMPETENCE & NEGLIGENCE

From: domainremoved <Janet>

Just in case I don't make it to your office hours on Friday, (because I will probably be marooned on Alpine Road) I am complaining about MP Public Works and MPPD for total incompetence/negligence. This morning it took 5 iterations of traffic lights and around 15 mins to get from Stowe Lane to Junipero Serra.  Coming back the other way I could not get into my driveway because traffic was backed up all the way as far as I could see towards 280.There is some kind of construction going on at the Sand Hill/Santa Cruz intersection.  However, there are apparently no warning signs to alert the thousands of commuters to take another route.  There was nothing in the Almanac or the other local papers.  There is no  MP police presence to take care of the utter chaos/road rage/vehicle violations.  I saw no warning signs of upcoming construction prior to the lanes being blocked.  There seems to have been no coordination with the San Mateo Public Works/Sheriff/OES or with the CHP.  When a neighbor called the MPPD yesterday to ask why there was no police presence  since there were multiple vehicle violations, they were basically told "Not our job."Alpine Road is used by thousands of people every day and the very least that MP should have done is coordinate with the County to see that problems were minimized.  This is a total screw up.
