Rancho Santa Fe Bridge Blockers

by The Editors on June 29, 2007

Fixit250The San Diego Union Tribune’s Fix It column recently investigated the new bridge along Rancho Santa Fe Drive where metal bars erected as a railing completely hide oncoming traffic from cars pulling out from the side street.

Steve Verret, who operates a traffic school in an office park along La Costa Meadows Drive, said the railing is a hazard. As cars cross the bridge, he said, they are “totally invisible” from the side street. Black cars tend to blend in, he said.

The City of Carlsbad apparently “referred the issue to the designer of the Federally funded project.” And according to deputy city engineer David Hauser, no additional actions are expected.

Guess we’ll just have to wait for a family to be hit and killed before the the intersection is looked at again.
