Give Caltrans input on their latest freeway-widening plans!
Caltrans ready to expand Yolo Causeway, seeks public’s input
Project would extend carpool lane from Solano County to Sacramento County
Remember: Several studies have shown that freeway expansion leads to increased vehicle miles traveled (VMT) (“induced demand”) and encourages sprawl, thereby exacerbating the region’s traffic and air quality woes, and increasing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. (excerpt from ECOS Press Release on our lawsuit filed against Caltrans re Highway 50, based on the same premise).
Bottom line? Adding lanes is expensive and doesn’t alleviate congestion after all.
Please attend one of Caltrans’ workshops as they seek public input abpout widening the I-80 freeway:
- Thursday, June 14, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the West Sacramento Civic Center Galleria at 1110 West Capitol Ave. in West Sacramento
- Thursday, June 21, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Sacramento City Hall at 915 I St. in Sacramento
