reader request: eagle rock boulevard + yosemite drive, eagle rock

Thanks to Ramon Martinez for the location request.

It's easy to imagine the famous Red Car trains running along this stretch of Eagle Rock Blvd., like they once did back in the day. In fact, a train line down the middle of this road would make sense, given its width. Without the train, however, it feels lonely + placeless; the dedicated left-turn lane flanked by an extra-wide lane buffer to the left and double-double yellow lines to the right seems like overkill, as if street painters had too much canvas to work with. How great would it be to bring back the trains and return this street to its original sense of scale? See it narrowed!
