July 8 deadline near for Draft 2050 RTP and SCS comments


SANDAG has crafted a visionary plan calling for $196 billion to be invested during the next 40 years in the San Diego region that will integrate the transportation system, transform the transit network, and create sustainable communities. The Draft 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) meet state greenhouse gas reduction targets while proposing to preserve more than half of the region's land as open space, create 156 new miles of trolley services, add 130 miles of Express Lanes to facilitate carpools, vanpools, and premium bus service, and dedicate $3.4 billion for bicycle and pedestrian projects.
