Eastern Cal­i­for­nia traf­fic

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Front Page -

On a re­lated note, Cal­trans District Nine folks are work­ing on a study of freight move­ment and re­lated needs for additional park­ing along high­ways 14, 395, 6, and 58.

Like the need to up­grade 58 over the Te­hachapis, this project is a re­sponse to in­creased truck traf­fic.

Es­ti­mated truck traf­fic on high­ways 6, 14, and 395 is ex­pected to in­crease sig­nif­i­cantly by 2040.

Rec­om­men­da­tions for han­dling in­creased truck park­ing along the 14/395 cor­ri­dor in­clude ex­pand­ing Cal­trans road­side rest ar­eas in Boron, Mam­moth, Coso Junc­tion and Big Pine, and park­ing on high­way rights of way in Bridge­port, Bishop, Ridge­crest and Te­hachapi.

The study also rec­om­mends en­cour­ag­ing the pri­vate sec­tor to build truck park­ing, pos­si­bly as part of a busi­ness, in Bishop and Ridge­crest.

The sig­nif­i­cance of all these ef­forts is also re­flected in con­struc­tion of a free­way by­pass on 58 at Kramer Junc­tion and of new truck stops in Boron and Kramer Junc­tion, along with the two new truck stops in Te­hachapi.
