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.
