Personally, I'd love to see Oak Avenue Parkway connected across the river, but I bet some engineer will tell me why that isn't a good idea.

The way to go is write whoever you can to get the new bridge approved. Whether it's on Oak or next to the Dam, it needs to be done. Let's get that bridge approved, as soon as possible!

I don't think closing the dam road will prevent anyone from damaging it if that is their intention. If they truly wanted to protect the Dam, they would close Folsom Lake to all boats.
Closing the road is a safety precaution for everyone. Better safe than sorry.
I have family living in the Sacramento area. I don't have any complaints about them closing the dam road. I would rather be inconvenienced and my family members safe anytime.
Oak Avenue and a new bridge being built is the better route.

I doubt that this will do much good except that possibly it might get the new proposed bridge and AUBURN DAM built SOONER!!!!
And John, he ALSO urged everyone to write to their CA legislators and tell them how you feel. Those would be Boxer, Feinstein, Cox, Ose, Matsui, and as well, Ridge, Ashcroft, and President Bush, and anyone else you can think of!
The addresses of most of the above are published every week in the Folsom Telegraph, and are available online as well. Most of the E-MAIL ADDRESSES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE ONLINE!
BELIEVE IT OR NOT THESE LETTERS DO GET COUNTED!!!

THERE ARE JILLION LOCATIONS THAT A "TERRORIST" WOULD TARGET BEFORE THE PUNY FOLSOM DAM. BESIDES, CLOSING THE ROAD DOES NOT PROTECT THE DAM FROM BOATS ON THE LAKE, MISSLES FROM THE SHORE, A LITTLE CESSNA DROPPING A 'PACKAGE', ETC.
THIS IS ABOUT POLITICS! IT'S MATSUI VS OSE.
AND THE BUREAU OF RECLAMATION AND TOM AIKEN WANTING PRIVACY AND WORK SPACE FOR THEIR VARIOUS PROJECTS ON THE DAM AND SURROUNDS.
SAFETY?, GET REAL. GO OUT AND LOOK HOW 'SAFE' IT IS FROM "ATTACK" JUST BECAUSE 18,000 COMMUTERS ARE DENIED ACCESS TO THE ROAD.
YOU HONK YOUR HORN AND YOU'LL GET THE ATTENTION OF THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THINGS - FIGHT CITY HALL.
WHEN RESIDENTS COMPLAIN ABOUT THE NOISE AND TRAFFIC CONGESTION THE COUNCEL WILL PRESSURE THE BUREAU OF REC AND YOUR POLITICAL REPRESENTATIVES. YOU CAN RIGHT ALL THE LETTERS YOU WANT - WE ARE TOO SMALL TO MAKE AN IMPACT. ONLY CITY HALL HAS THE POWER![B][B][U][U]

There are a million targets in the US for terrorists to hit, and this is one of them... there should have been a by-pass bridge YEARS ago, and letting the public over it all this time only was a quick fix. I am in support of the bridge closure, as much of a traffic nightmare it will cause.
Write to Matsui, Ose, Doolittle, Boxer, Feinstein, Ortiz... get this new bridge built NOW!

I thought that you might like to know that you can edit your own posts even after you have posted them. So in the future if you want to change "right" to "write" just click on the "edit" button in the upper right (or is that write?) hand corner of your post. It took me awhile to figure this out but now that I know I use it often because my spelling isn't always up to par. Anyway, I hope you find this info useful and by the way, welcome to myfolsom.com!

heading to Washington to try and fight the DAM problem. They are going to
attempt to get the road reopened.

We'll see what happens. I firmly believe the best course of action is to expidite the new bridge. Write to Representative Ose and show your support to get a bridge in here immediately. Opening up the dam road agin will result in a security threat as well as avoiding the real situation - the need for a bridge. We needed this thing 30 years ago... they need to make a 4-6 lane bridge and make Folsom Auburn a major thoroughfair to Roseville, perhaps even a freeway while we can. Almost that whole artery is not developed yet, and now is our only opportunity to make a long-needed 50/80 connector.
Those of you old-timers may remember that Hazel Blvd. was originally designed to be a 50/80 connector, and then Gov. Brown decided to scrap that idea and invest in other things. Now Hazel Blvd has no room to grow and is always jammed full of traffic. There is no option to make that road a freeway now as it would cost billions to buy out the home owners.
This is happening all over again - we need that 50-80 connector, as is evident by the dam road closure. Opening up the dam road again will only cover the ears of elected officials, making it look like everything's OK. It's not OK, we need a large bridge over the American River and a major artery connecting to Roseville! Now is our only chance of doing this!

Use the toll to put 24 hour security patrols on the bridge and water, until
the new bridge can be built.
Just an idea.
