SANDAG approves $196B transportation development plan

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A $196 billion plan for developing San Diego County's transportation infrastructure through 2050 was unanimously approved Friday by the San Diego Association of Governments Board of Directors.

The organization known as SANDAG is the key planning body for regional transportation initiatives.

The draft 2050 Regional Transportation Plan improves mass transit, includes bicycling and walking, and promotes programs that reduce demand while increasing efficiency, according to SANDAG.

The plan is also designed to reduce the per-capita amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.

It includes double-tracking the Coaster and Sprinter rail lines, improving and expanding trolley service and highway projects.

SANDAG staff will next embark on a series of workshops and public hearings to take input from residents on the draft plan.
