"San Francisco has serious problems in the parking and the movement of its own city traffic," he observed. "With nearly 140,000 vehicles in the city's own downtown traffic jam, it must realize that bridge cars, while aggravating congestion, do not constitute Its basic cause." EXPEDITED FREEWAY Booker said state plans for the Cirallel bridge will greatly faclli-te aoiutlon of the city problem. He aeid the San Francisco approach wta be a fully expedited freeway, connecting with the Bayshore Freeway, with 14 ramps between First Street and 10th Street to distribute traffic widely through the downtown area. This structure, to be financed as part of the bridge or the state highway system, must be built irrespec tive of the location of ,the new crossings, he declared. Weller Noble, chairman of the Bay Area Council bridge committee, emphasized its need. "Transbay travelers go to San Francisco for business, or pleasure to offices, hotels, stores, restaurants, theaters," he observed. "All those facilities are in the downtown area.
