Please inform us of the road closures AMGEN is going to cause, reader says
Dear Street Smarts, Q: Sunday's Sentinel carried ads for the AMGEN event in which you will play a vital part! That role is to keep the public informed about plans to close roads and restrict access! This year several major roads will be shut down and the public greatly inconvenienced. I will not carry on about what a BIG MESS I think it will be, but public agencies need to inform the public. Your job will be to get accurate information and publish it. Thanks, Bill Delany, Capitola A: Race day is going to be interesting, indeed. On Monday, May 14, AMGEN Tour of California racers will make their way from San Francisco to Aptos, 117.1 miles. The route will take them down Highway 1 to Bonny Doon and Empire Grade Road to Jamison Creek Road, Highway 9, Bear Creek Road, Summit Road, Old San Jose Road, Soquel Drive and end at Cabrillo College, where a health and wellness fair will be taking place. The cyclists are expected to arrive just before 4 p.m. More information about the race is online at http://www.amgentourofcalifornia.com/Route/stages/stage2-2012.html.
