Joel. Brett's food is, indeed fantastic. He is also the most expensive caterer in Humboldt County. Thanks for letting folks know that HAF is doing a marvelous job managing donor money in such an important way... I will be sure to direct future donations to organizations that actually put philanthropy first. HAF was once a valuable local resource. New and inexperienced management has turned Vera Vietor's original vision into a joke.
The Safety Corridor exists as a result f spcial legislation passed by the Legislature, because a traffic engineering study (the standard by which safe speeds are determined) does not support such a low speed limit. It was enacted in response to a four person fatal collision at Indianola, what, ten, twelve years ago? At that time, CalTrans said it would take ten years to develop an interchange at Indianola by the time engineering and environental work was completed. Where is it? Where in the process does this project stand? Granted, it's not the only dangerous spot on the road, but it's the worst one that caused the corridor in the first place. the road was clearly built to be a high speed connection between the two biggest towns in the county; Indianlola was known to be a dangerous location at least forty years ago; why not just build the interchange and be done with it? the legislature could choose at any time to not renew the corridor, at which point the speed limit would go back up as mandated by state law.
It takes an extra minute supposedly to drive the corridor at the reduced speed. Fine and good, until oyu get to the Big Lagoon causeway and see some RV wobbling down the highway a half mile in front of you going 28.3 miles per hour right at the end of the passing lane. Now that corridor just added a lot more time to your trip...
YAY!! Now you need to make amends with Hank.
