Re "McKinley Village, while imperfect, is good for Sacramento" (Editorial, April 28): Consider this for funding the Alhambra underpass.
The current McKinley Village project budgets over $650,000 for a street lighting system. However, the multi-megawatt Kings electronic billboard that will be high on the hill across Highway 80 will provide more than enough light to illuminate the subdivision through even the darkest of nights.
The money saved by deleting this unnecessary street light system can be used to fund a substantial portion of the Alhambra tunnel.
