Ravenswood Rail Road Crossing

There will be a study session tomorrow evening. It is unlikely that I'll be
able to attend. I would like to state my vote for including consideration
of a tunnel for Caltrain with the freight left on top on a single track.
Removing a track would open space for a city wide Bike Lane North/South.

I understand that this might require undergrounding the Menlo Park Station,
and would cost more money than some other solutions. But there would be
savings as well. However, as I understand the alternatives, they would
require construction of temporary tracks, years of construction and
disruption of our lives and less connectivity of our community. Noise
would also be worse with even a partially elevated train. These factors
need to be considered in "costs".

Thank you,

Hinda G. Sack
