_ -; 4--San Mateo Times Thursday, April 27, 1961 AMERICAN TREE EXPERTS · Fr»« Ettlrnat** · Sol lif act ion Guaranteed 15 Ye«r» E*p«rie*c« TERMS TO SUIT E Hearing Due Tuesday on S. M. High Level Bridge The transportation committeeibearing Tuesday in Sacramento bill .to provide making the San of the state senate will hold a on Senator Richard J. Dolwig's Mateo-Eayward bridge a bign- ! -- level, six-lane structure in lieu of the four-lane lift span now contemplated. A high-level span as proposed in Dolwig's bill would eliminate the interruption of traffic caused by the lift span. Figures s h o w that the San Mateo bridge span was lifted 2101 times in 1960. with a traffic interruption each time of from 5 to 15 minutes. In contrast, figures show that the Richmond- San Rafael bridge, a six-lane, two-level bridge, carried some 350,000 less vehicles last year than the 3,683,017 which crossed the San Mateo bridge. It is estimated that a 15-mmute delay by operation of the lift span if the San Mateo bridge is made a four-lane structure as now planned could back up 375 cars at peak hours. In addition to creating congestion and ill-will on the part of motorists, the four-lane span would ''pose a greater accident hazard. A four-lane crossing with no shoulders can expect 247 injury accidents and 9.1 fatal accidents per 100,000,000 vehicle miles, while a six-lane freeway would expect 125 injury accidents and 2.93 fatal mishaps per 100,000,000 vehicle miles, according to the state division of highways. Proponents of the high-level bridge point out that the Yolo causeway, which is now four lanes, similar to the proposec improved San Mateo bridge, had a traffic count of 7,300.000 vehicle last year and is being replaced by a" six-lane divided structure. It is estimated that the San San Mateo bridge will be carrying 7,300,000 vehicles by 1973 at the latest, and possibly by 1969. Tuesday's hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in room 4203 of the ipitol office annex. LUCERNE" f a m o u s c o n t i n e n t a l There is nothing like a Original"... 29.95.

PlannersBack Area Group REDWOOD CITY - Qualified support of legislation to form a jay area regional planning agency was voted yesterday by the county planning commission. Members of the commission wanted to make it clear that, although they favor the concept of regional planning, they do not necessarily approve of all of the provisions of the proposed legislation. Assembly Bill 2560. Planning Director Frank Skill man noted that Senate Bill 853, which would establish a bay area transportation commission, suggests the formation of a regional advisory agency. The assembly bill is the same as that defeated in the legislature two years ago, with the exception that it now sets up a maximum tax rate of one-half cent for each $100 assessed valuation, compared with a one-cent levy two years ago. Skillman said the annual cost for San Mateo county would be less than $40,000. The county board of supervisors supported the bill two years ago when it called for a one-cent tax.
