Width would be beautiful

By From page A10 | March 21, 2014

I read in the Sunday Enterprise that the city of Davis and others want to beautify the Richards tunnel.  The old saying is “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.” You can add twin bike, toad and pedestrian tunnels, but to improve traffic flow through the tunnel, you need to widen the traffic lanes to four lanes.  If the old tunnel is of significant importance, it can be moved next to the WPA outhouse in Central Park.  No amount of lipstick can make this pig beautiful.
