City Fires Cannon Road Connection

by The Editors on May 30, 2008

Cannon280We’ve never wanted another direct connection between Oceanside/Vista and Carlsbadistan and now it looks like we’re safe for the foreseeable future as the City of Carlsbad has decided that finishing the Cannon Road connection would be too costly, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

We’ve always had that (Cannon Road) on the drawing board and all the (environmental) agencies have known about it, but based on what I’ve seen with the agencies, it’d be difficult to do,” Carlsbad Mayor Bud Lewis said.

Though the connection was apparently approved in 2002 at a cost of $14.5 million, now thanks to environmental hurdles and inflation it would be more in the $30 million according to Carlsbad City Engineer Bob Johnson.

All we can say is thank you, thank you, thank you for keeping Cannon closed.
