Our valley is a basin that collects rain runoff from the slopes of the surrounding mountains all eventually draining into the Whitewater Channel. When the wash is running with water, it causes major traffic congestion. We spend a lot of money on it. We build bridges or we do road repair at every crossing. We’ve put golf courses in it that get washed out regularly. Berms line the waterway, protecting the neighborhoods that border it.
For additional cost, roughly equivalent to the cost of two of our current I-10 freeway upgrades and using existing berms, we could build a multi-use trail connecting Palm Springs and most other valley communities to the Salton Sea, a 50+ mile linear recreational park open to young and old using any and all forms of non-motorized transportation. With an interested public it could happen.
