SEEKING TRAFFIC RELIEF ON CRUCIAL HIGHWAY 101 CORRIDOR
Next week is a big week for transportation. The Bay Area Council is driving ahead with its combination of strategies to deliver quick commute improvements in the economically important Highway 101 corridor, which include highway operational improvements, Caltrain electrification, corporate shuttle buses, and potentially introducing a north-south ferry route to serve Silicon Valley. On Monday (June 22), the Council is meeting with Water Emergency Transportation Authority Executive Director Nina Rannells to explore opportunities to speeding the expansion of ferry service on the bay and provide a new commute alternative in this severely congested corridor. Later in the week, the Council will meet with key regional and local transportation leaders to identify solutions for bringing widespread traffic relief to the badly congested 101 corridor.
