As an aside, related to "dark bicycle infrastructure," I inquired from
our traffic engineer as to whether or not a new planned path would have
lighting, and he said, "probably not" since it will be on Santa Clara
County Water District land and they don't want lighting in riparian
areas, even though in this case it's not a creek, just a drainage ditch.
I'd like to see lighting as it will end up being a heavily used
multi-use trail if it is ever built, including night and early morning.
No problem. Just issue flashlights and bicycle lights at the
beginning of the trail, and have riders deposit them in a bin at the
other end. The total cost of such lights would probably be less than
the cost of the environmental impact study needed to build anything in
a riparian corridor. If economics don't work out to the council's
liking, then invent the flashlight and bicycle light vending machine.
The "thing" is that unlike an MUP along a creek, which really is a
riparian area, this drainage ditch is not. The MUP would run on the
south side of the 280 sound wall from the Mary Avenue Bicycle Bridge,
past Apple's Infinite Loop campus, and continue to Apple's new Apple
I can't imagine it being pleasant to ride right next to the freeway, but
it is what it is.
Pfff. Next to the highway? Try riding down the middle at rush hour. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5TYlJ7xD50 This is how we handle our riparian areas.

We could use such forward thinking traffic engineers out here.
Some towns have crosswalks with a bucket of flags on either side for crossing pedestrians to hold up to traffic. Maybe downtown Willow Glen on Lincoln?
It helps to have a big river with a bridge over it. https://tinyurl.com/ybx4ks9v Not going to get that in Willow Glen.
The Glen Jackson Bridge was built in 1982, so it was forward thinking. It's a pedestrian and bicycle facility, but its a long walk from one end to other. I've never seen anyone walking. I like the end of the bridge where you drop down a hole: https://bikeportland.org/wp-content/..._fwyentry1.jpg And not to assume that every bicycle facility is entirely safe: https://bikeportland.org/wp-content/...04/205car1.jpg
Dopes are everywhere.
It's a popular way out to the Washington side of the Gorge, which is a great place to ride. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsxRTqMT3z0 In the winter, it's a great place to ride if you're riding west. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj_r2knnAj8 Riding east
