Answer

According to the controller statement, the estimated cost of keeping the Great Highway will vary depending on which proposal the City moves forward with. Regardless of which proposal moves forward, public resources will need to be allocated for the project. It's important for the City to continue engaging the public on the future of this essential access road to decide which alternative to pursue, all of which vary in design, time and cost.

The City has proposed closing and removing the Great Highway Extension and converting it into a park. This is part of a plan to protect the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant from the effects of coastal erosion. The City does not need to close any part of the Great Highway to respond to coastal erosion, and has multiple viable options under consideration, with most options preserving full or partial use of the Great Highway Extension. Closure costs us far more in traffic delays, congestion and air pollution by diverting traffic into local neighborhood streets. 

根據估值官的聲明,保留大公路的估計成本將根據市府想選擇的方案而有所不同。無論選擇哪個方案,都需要為該項目分配公共資源。對於三藩市來說,很重要的是繼續讓公眾參與這條重要通道的未來規劃,以決定採用哪種替代方案,所有方案都在設計、時間和成本方面各不相同。

市府已提議關閉和拆除大公路的擴建部分,並將其改建為公園。這是保護海濱水污染控製廠免受海岸侵蝕影響的計劃的一部分。市府不需要關閉大公路的任何部分來應對海岸侵蝕,市府正在考慮多種可行的選擇,其中大多數選擇保留全部或部分使用大公路的擴建部分。因為交通會轉移到社區小街道,關閉大公路會使我們在交通延誤、塞車和空氣污染方面付出了更多的代價。
