A freeway alongside San Lorenzo Creek? In 2002 the Metropolitan Transportation Commission seriously considered building a new freeway and bridge across the bay, alongside San Lorenzo Creek and over the San Lorenzo Creek marshlands. This idea was killed by the efforts of a few, but don't be surprised if it surfaces again. (See "New Mid-Bay Bridge," page 21. File is PDF.)
