There’s an off-road route on the West aspect of Morgan Hill that I get pleasure from. It serves as a shortcut, and I’ve at all times puzzled why there was this undeveloped hall in a fairly prime actual property space. I simply came upon why. It turns our the land was put aside for the “Hale Avenue Extension“. The town had deliberate this for fairly a while however solely now bought the funding.
It is sensible, traffic-wise. Hale Ave. is a serious highway coming down from the North that individuals use as a again strategy to commute. Nevertheless it ends at Primary, in a T-intersection, which makes individuals making an attempt to get to the southwest finish of city clog up different native streets, together with downtown. The extenstion will assist with that. However I’ll nonetheless miss my little off-road route. Hopefully, as a result of our complete streets coverage, it can have good bike lanes, as does the prevailing a part of Hale Ave.
