Episode Summary

EDIT
April 5, 2013 Topic: The Tom Lantos Tunnels at Devil’s Slide Guests: Lennie Roberts, legislative advocate, Committee for Green Foothills Zoe Kersteen-Tucker, spokesperson, Think Tunnel campaign Hosted by: Mark Simon Nicholas Calderon It took an uprising of people throughout San Mateo County to say no to a road that would bypass the treacherous and unstable Devil’s Slide and to push for a tunnel instead. Seventeen years later, the tunnel has opened – and we talk to two key leaders who raised rabble and got all of us to Think Tunnel. The Game is politics. The Game is on. When the California Department of Transportation decided to build a roadway bypassing Devil’s Slide, they thought it would be faster and cheaper than building a tunnel. Building a safe passage up the Coastside would override any objections anyone might have to the fact that the roadway went through environmentally sensitive lands. But a small group of activists said the cheap alternative exacted too high a price to the long-treasured land and county preserve the road would run through. And a couple of those activists are among the roll call of people some call heroes for stopping the roadway and winning the battle for a tunnel. We are pleased to welcome Lennie Roberts and Zoe Kersteen-Tucker, two of the leaders of the successful effort to think, vote, build and open the Tom Lantos Tunnels at Devil’s Slide.moreless
