The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday took steps to connect a gap in Sesnon Boulevard between Granada Hills and Porter Ranch that would provide an east-west thoroughfare north of Rinaldi Street. The council instructed the city engineer to prepare plans and a cost estimate for building a bridge to extend Sesnon east of Reseda Boulevard over Aliso Creek.

O'Melveny Park and Bee Canyon Park, two contiguous recreation areas in Granada Hills, will soon be divided by a four-lane ribbon of concrete and speeding cars when an 800-foot-long segment of Sesnon Boulevard is built between them. And if that isn't enough, nearby residents are also unhappy because Los Angeles City Councilman Hal Bernson is supporting a 90- to 100-foot-long pedestrian tunnel under the new road for users of the two parks.

Regarding "Commuter Route to Be Closed at Rush Hour," what will our ingenious councilman think of next in trying to deal with the Valley's runaway growth problems? Why not close Sepulveda Boulevard to southbound traffic in the morning and close it to northbound traffic in the evening? We could also restrict access on both Reseda Boulevard and Tampa Avenue north of Rinaldi Street to residents only. Councilman Bernson lives in Granada Hills, but why should his neighborhood be the only one with restricted access?

I would like to respond to the letter by Oscar Eitland regarding the proposed bridge over Aliso Canyon (Sept. 6). As one of the organizers of the protest, I can assure you there were no "half-truths and outright false statements" perpetrated by members of PRIDE. We have done our homework and know the score. The construction of the bridge would serve several purposes, none of which are beneficial to the neighborhood. First, the bridge would connect Sesnon Boulevard to Balboa Boulevard and Interstate 5. In effect, Sesnon Boulevard would become a "118 alternate route," sending thousands of cars through our neighborhood every hour.

The development firm behind a $2-billion residential and commercial plan for Porter Ranch said Monday that it opposes Los Angeles City Councilman Hal Bernson's recommendation for a 20% cut in the proposal's commercial area. In a letter to the Planning Commission released Monday by the Porter Ranch Development Co., the firm also said it has agreed "in principle" to help pay for a bridge across Aliso Canyon near the development site. Bernson and city transportation officials have said the bridge and completion of Sesnon Boulevard will be needed to ease future traffic in the area.
