6 PM: Welcome and Introductions

6:10 PM: Adding Lanes to I-80 between Davis and Sacramento, including Yolo Causeway
Yolo County Transportation District’s Executive Director Autumn Bernstein will discuss plans to add “managed lanes”. In October, the District board agreed to an MOU with Caltrans to develop this project, and to apply for State funding to augment federal funds; SACOG has agreed to prioritize this project. A tolling authority is planned; the District will determine how tolling lane revenue should be spent. Can tolls be used to fund public transit, sufficient to fully mitigate additional vehicle-miles that this widening would induce?
