About the Project
The alternatives explored in the Corridor Study show that highway capacity improvements and transit expansion will provide congestion relief. If no action is taken, the amount of planned growth in the corridor will exacerbate current traffic conditions and safety will continue to be compromised. By adding capacity to the corridor, school bus safety and emergency response times will improve. Overall, the project area will gain access and mobility improvements, especially when partnered with the transit component of the project.
The Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) adds an effective mass transit component to the Corridor Study. The CCT could save the average commuter 30 minutes a day or more. That adds up to more than 2.5 hours a week, or 130 hours per year! The proposed transit options could potentially remove thousands of cars from the highways, reducing air and water pollution and improving commuting conditions for everyone.
