Expressway Plan 2040 is the successor to the   2003 Comprehensive County Expressway Planning Study   and the   2008 Updates.   The 2003 Study developed and documented consensus for capacity and operational enhancements, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, sound walls, and landscaping.  The Study also addressed expressway maintenance and operational needs.  In 2008, the   Santa Teresa Boulevard-Hale Avenue Corridor   in South County was added to the Study. 

For additional facts about the project, please review the  Expressway Plan 2040 Information Sheet

Expressway Plan 2040 takes a fresh look at the needs of the expressways and the Santa Teresa/Hale Corridor based on city land use plans, projected 2040 traffic growth and Complete Streets planning.  Expressway Plan 2040 will also identify new challenges and positive developments or opportunities, recommend any necessary policy changes, and revise funding requirements and implementation strategies.


Expressway Plan 2040 is expected to be completed by June 2015.
