As many of you know, CalTrans has released the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) on its proposed expansion of Highway 50 from Sunrise into central Sacramento. Caltrans is hosting two public workshops, one in Sacramento tonight and one in Rancho Cordova tomorrow night, to hear public comment on the project.
For most of us living in Sacramento, this may be our best chance to demonstrate the intensity of community opposition to this project.

Please come out to one or both of these workshops to tell Caltrans to not ram any more freeway lanes through our neighborhoods.

This is an opportunity to share your thoughts on the impact of ever-increasing vehicular traffic along the US 50 corridor. Expanding US 50 will bring more cars, more traffic, more air and noise pollution, and ultimately more congestion and to Sacramento's neighborhoods. And an expanded US 50 will support more unsustainable sprawl growth in the suburbs.

ECOS continues to push for smart investments in light rail and other travel modes such as sidewalks, bike lanes and buses, along the US 50 corridor as the far superior long-term and sustainable approach to addressing congestion and mobility.

Even if you're not willing to speak at tonight's or tomorrow's workshop, your presence to support the speakers is crucial. A strong public showing of opposition is politically very important.

Tonight (Wed, Jan 10), 5pm-8pm, David Lubin Elementary School, 3535 M Street, in Sacramento

Tomorrow (Thurs, Jan 11), 5pm-8pm, Mitchell Middle School, 2100 Zinfandel Drive, in Rancho Cordova
