After many years on Danville Blvd, the problems have never been its name and a change of the name will not hide the Blvd from usage by too many commuters that still treat our community blvd as a highway.
Let's not be distracted from fixing the Blvd by simply changing its name or other silly solutions such as a roundabout. Let's not invite more use by widening or creating better access to and from 680.
Take measures to stop commuter usage. Changing the name will not stop the blvd from being the Road to Danville and back.

I was reading the Forum commentary and up pops your thoughts, Bob.
To fix the commuter use problem, I suggest we make each end of Danville Blvd a DEAD END in Alamo. A dead end just before Rudgear would not let commuters enter our blvd and a similar dead end at El Portal would stop commuters from entering from the south.
The better option is a toll road for Danville Blvd in Alamo and resident permits that allow free usage. A toll gate at each end would make commuters think about using our community roads and lanes for their commute.

Come on, Alamo,
We have known how to fix this commute traffic for years. Take out Danville Blvd in our shopping center and make north/south access via access lanes in the MALL. The commuters will go away.
