FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Marysville Caltrans District 3 is soliciting feedback from community members on proposed projects to improve travel on the Interstate 80 (I-80) corridor between Solano, Yolo, and Sacramento counties, including US 50 in Yolo County.
Caltrans initiated the I-80 Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan (CMCP) in December of 2019 in coordination with corridor partners, including local and regional governments, community groups, and transportation planning agencies in Solano, Yolo, and Sacramento counties.
Survey feedback from community members and local stakeholders gathered in January 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 70-miles of the I-80 and US 50 corridors 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 21, 2022 and ending on July 28, 2022. Information on the plan and projects is now available for review at www.I80CMCP.com.
