CRC Week: RC-14 to 18 and 21, the Alternative Corridors

Described on pages 5-14 to 5-23 (PDF, 482K) of the report (PDF 3.3M) these are all some variation on putting the additional traffic somewhere else. In most cases (except for the I-205 improvements scenario), in a new corridor. A new corridor would open up new land for development and quite likely encourage sprawl and more auto-dependence, so I’m happy that staff is not recommending moving these forward.
