FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Marysville Caltrans District 3 is soliciting feedback from community members on proposed projects to improve travel on the Interstate 5 (I-5) corridor between Sacramento and Yolo counties.
Caltrans initiated the I-5 Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan (CMCP) in June 2020 in coordination with corridor partners, including local and regional governments, community groups, and transportation planning agencies in Sacramento and Yolo counties.
Survey feedback from community members and local stakeholders gathered in July 2021 has assisted Caltrans in developing a list of more than 100 planned and proposed multimodal projects for the corridor such as intercity rail service expansion, light rail projects, enhanced express bus, transit center improvements, managed lanes, auxiliary lanes, interchange improvements, local arterial projects, and freight improvement projects.
The proposed projects identified in the CMCP cover approximately 45-miles of the I-5 corridor with the purpose of reducing vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions and improving livability in the community through operational strategies such as managed lanes, technological advancements, and increased multimodal options such as bike and pedestrian facilities, local and express bus routes, and passenger and freight rail.
Caltrans would appreciate public feedback on the list of corridor projects beginning on July 29, 2022 and ending on August 5, 2022. Information on the plan and projects is now available for review at the I5 CMCP website.
Comments or questions about the projects may be submitted to:
