I find it interesting that there has been so much negative print about the J Street section that runs behind Oak Valley Regional Hospital. People are upset because they want to ease cross traffic and about, as Alice Garcia states, "abusing public money" and "doing an injustice."
If you look east on J Street from the hospital, you will see that you gain only one block before J Street runs into the soccer field at Oakdale High School. You still need to turn north or south to get around the high school. I don't see how that eases cross-town traffic at all.
