Ideas, Complaints Wanted at Interstate 8 Meeting

    If you drive the Interstate 8 corridor through the City of San Diego, traffic analysts are looking for your ideas and feedback.

    The San Diego Association of Governments, Caltrans, the city of San Diego and the Metropolitan Transit System will hold a public meeting Tuesday, July 29 to solicit ideas about the I-8 from 70th Street all the way to Sea World Drive/Sunset Cliffs Blvd.

    Traffic and gridlock in this area has become more common because of the connections to freeways including Interstate 5, State Route 163, Interstate 805 and Interstate 15.

    There’s also been an increase in people using the corridor because of the addition of hotels and retail stores in the area.

    Members of the public can come to the meeting to give advice and input on how to improve the traffic, transit services and also make it easier for pedestrians and bikes in the area.

    The feedback will go into a study SANDAG is doing along with Caltrans, MTS and the City of SD for the future changes to I-8.

    The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 :30 p.m. at 6600 Montezuma Road in the College-Rolando Library.
