So simple we have city planners they spent millions in a couple years re-creating a lot better intersection and roadway between the freeway and San Andreas what’s so hard about putting a paint strip down designating a bicycle lane

Hundreds of cyclists each day ride under the freeway on Carrillo in each direction. I can see where a timid cyclist would be concerned about not having enough room to ride in that area, but the vast VAST majority of cyclists have not problems whatsoever. Anyone who is worried so much as to be afraid to ride on our streets possibly needs to stick to the bike paths along the beach, Las Positas, or the one that goes out to Goleta Beach. A scared rider is a danger to themselves and to those who drive past them. It's like the child riding a bike for the first time without training wheels: all is good, they get a bit of speed, start getting nervous, tense up, handlebars start to wiggle, and then the fall/crash (forgetting about the brakes!). As someone mentioned, there are many ways to avoid the "scary, dangerous, and perilous" Carrillo underpass. Of course, it may take you a few minutes longer to take one of the many alternate routes where you'll feel safer, so use them and we can all ride another day.

Things you don't do when biking SB:
Ride down De La Vina or Chapala or up Mission or Carrillo.
Things you do do when biking SB: Ride up or down Bath or Castillo and use the Oak Park, Anapamu and Ortega Street foot bridges.

Or take Micheltorena. I find that one to be easier than Oak park.

In theory, yes. But in practice, people live very near these freeway crossings, they're not going to go out of their way 10 blocks to avoid a 2 block hairy section. Best to make all crossings safe for all types of travelers.

You might not feel comfortable doing so, but legally you have the right to take the whole lane so you aren't riding next to a vehicle: https://www.calbike.org/go_for_a_ride/california_bicycle_laws/

Where is it? Same place it’s been for the past half century. In my dreams.

Where’s the simple painted bike lane stripe ? To and from San Andres on Carrillo - That doesn’t cost millions

Why does a bike rider think that the people of the state should spend millions of dollars on providing him with a lane on every street/underpass/viaduct that exists. Share the burden. You can easily avoid this intersection/underpass. If not, get off your bicycle and walk with the pedestrians to the other side. Too much to ask?

Why do you think cyclists don't pay taxes (general taxes and bonds are where most road maintenance funding comes from) for those same roads and expect a safe way to travel in return? Cyclists are homeowners, business owners, tax payers, and vehicle drivers too. Expecting a safe passage during construction is automatic for vehicles and pedestrians, seems easy to extend that to humans on bikes.

20 years ago, I would feel this sentiment. Today? We know too much about climate change and close we are to irreversibility. There absolutely should be bike lanes at all freeway crossings. We need to think of our future.

An alternative to traveling under Carrrillo underpass via bicycle is to take the Anapamu St bridge or the Ortega St bridge. Part of being able to bike around town is taking these routes that get you away from the vehicles on the streets.

Underpasses are owned and managed by Caltrans. The projects you saw were City projects a few blocks away. Coordinating with Caltrans is all but impossible for small projects.

This property ownership pattern is also why traffic is so awful on Carrillo at rush hour. Caltrans traffic lights do not sync with City lights.
