IV. Public Comment:

The Canyon School Board has had, from the declaration of local emergency to the present, the goal of restoring traffic over the Canyon Road Bridge as soon as possible. And we have urged this, as also repeatedly expressed, in order to reduce the risk to health and safety of our students, families, and staff.

Given that the Town of Moraga has finally opened bids for the installation of a single lane emergency bridge, we must assume that the Town is acting in good faith and will now be able to restore vehicle traffic by the end of November. We will continue to work to insure that the Town does in fact succeed in the installation of the bridge by that date.
