Caltrans has officially extended the public comment period by 30 days for the South County Traffic Relief Effort (SCTRE). This request was made by several in attendance at last week’s City of San Clemente Toll Roads Town Hall meeting. Public comments will now be accepted by Caltrans up until 5 p.m. on January 6, 2020.
As a reminder, tomorrow night (Wednesday 11/20/19) is the first of two public scoping meetings to seek public comment on the SCTRE. The meeting will be held at the Norman Murray Community Center in Mission Viejo from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A second public scoping period is planned for Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at the Dana Point Ocean Institute also 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Comments can be made in writing, e-mail or at the public scoping meetings.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Additional information is available on the project website (www.SCTRE.org).
The Transportation Corridor Agency (TCA) is considering alternatives to address mobility in South Orange County, including various potential routes to extend the 241 toll road from the existing southern terminus at Oso Parkway to a direct connection with Interstate 5. At its September 6, 2016 meeting, the City Council received an update on the process and potential conceptual alternatives developed up to that time.
