Exactly WHO will be PAYING for these special limited purpose exit lanes?
Furthermore, the impact of the construction traffic time and hassles will be on WHO?
The GENERAL PUBLIC is WHO. So the hassle of freeway construction for years and the cost of construction forever on, will be on the backs of people for which the exit lanes do not serve.
How do we take this vote out of the hands of individuals (Cal Trans, SR Council, etc) who do not represent us and don't care about OUR interests, as non-HOV people.
This thing is going to be pushed through. It is a process that has no mechanism for being stopped by the GENERAL PUBLIC.
" The city can expect a 20 percent increase in employment by 2040, according to the CCTA report, which would have between 400-500 cars using the Norris HOV ramps each hour. "
The estimation that there will be 400-500 each hour of new HOV users of these exits is BS!
This thing is going to be pushed through. It is a process that has no mechanism for being stopped by the GENERAL PUBLIC.
