This is in response to the Scott Lewis article “No. 7: The Future of Balboa Park“:

Some of us who are opposed to the bypass bridge and the parking structure behind the organ pavilion are not especially worried about the disruption during construction — that is only temporary. The real issues are: 1) the permanent architectural damage that will be done to a beautiful, historic bridge; and 2) the construction of a permanent monument to the automobile in the very center of a National Historic Landmark Zone. This seems incredibly destructive and shortsighted. The Cabrillo Bridge should be pedestrian only, parking located at the periphery of the park and a comprehensive tram operation implemented.
