“YoloTD and Caltrans are committed to creating transportation solutions that benefit our community, and your input is critical to our success,” said Autumn Bernstein, Executive Director of YoloTD. “We invite everyone to take part in this process and help shape the future of transportation in the Sacramento-Yolo region.”
The Yolo-80 Managed Lanes Project, located on the west side of the Sacramento-Yolo metro area, is poised to create an additional travel lane within the existing median, improving mobility, connectivity, and transportation options for the community. With approximately 17 miles of tolled express lanes, extending from the Yolo/Solano County line through to West El Camino Avenue on I-80, and connecting to I-5 on US-50 in Sacramento County, this initiative embodies the potential for an improved transportation system.
