Question to Mike - at what point should the Pleasanton traffic engineering department call the Pleasanton Police, Alameda County Sheriff, California Highway Patrol to ask for help in getting traffic from i680 to the fairground parking lots?
There are so many signal lights on Bernal, none of which are in sequence, that it makes it impossible to move fair going traffic down Bernal let alone make a clear passage for cars to get from i680 unto Bernal.
Obviously I am not going to take the Bernal exit to get home until the fair is over. But what about the people trying to get to the fair? In over 20 years of fairs, I have never seen the type of backup that existed on Bernal/Valley roads as it was on Wednesday.
I think the fair is great. But over the course of a year Bernal and Valley have been "improved?" to the extent that it does not take many cars to start causing back-ups.
