RE: Comments for Regional Transportation Plan, 2007

As an individual / organization interested in mobility and transportation issues, I would like to provide the following comments. (please select as many as you like)

The current draft 2007 RTP is in conflict with the rapid transit system lane designation stipulated as mitigation for the I-15 project in the 1993 MOU between the City of San Diego and the State of California (at item # 21).

The RTP and EIR need to address the express mitigations stipulated in the 1985 MOA between the City of San Diego and Caltrans to divert truck traffic to I-805 to the maximum extent feasible and to address noise and air pollution impacts to Central Elementary School (Items #7 and #9).

The proposed Good Movements Action Plan (GMAP) and RTP are in conflict with the mitigations stipulated in the 1985 MOA in that proposing the HOV/.Managed Lanes flexible highway system designation allows for truck use of the HOV/ML

The final 2007-RTP language must reflect that mitigations for SR 15 are outstanding and have the highest priority for achievement before any improvement is done in this segment of the SR-15. This project is identified in Table A.6 as the I-15 segment that runs between the SR-94 and SR-163 as part of the Reasonably Expected Revenue Scenario in Appendix A of the Draft 2007 RTP.

We must insist that the previously described project be built by 2012 and not by 2020 as it is described in Table A.7 page A-19 in Appendix A of the Draft 2007 RTP.

The final 2007-RTP language must reflect that the previously described project be considered as a highest priority project.

Bus routes 610 and 210 should be implemented by 2012 and not by 2020 and 2030 as described in Table A.8 in Appendix A of the Draft 2007 RTP.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment in this important transportation document.

 

Sincerely,

Your Name
