Quick trestle repairs receive kudos from cyclist
Dear Street Smarts, Q: I was surprised to see in the Sept. 5 Street Smarts the incident described by cyclist Gregg Ferry at the Boardwalk trestle bridge. Three days earlier, I had the same thing happen to me in the same place. I got my front tire stuck in the wide boards of the trestle path causing a spill. This Saturday, Sept. 7, our group rode the same route and were so glad to see that the city public works crews had already made the necessary repairs. Thanks for getting the word out to Assistant Public Works Director Chris Schneiter and thank you to the crews who made the repairs so quickly. Robert Martone, Santa Cruz A: Thank you and I will spread the word.
