Fu­ture traf­fic growth

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Front Page -

Ac­cord­ing to the study truck traf­fic over Te­hachapi has in­creased 36% based on 2014 data, which needs to be up­dated. That fig­ure re­flects some 5,764 av­er­age daily trucks.

Smith of KERNCOG said peo­ple at the agency were shocked to note that that is a big­ger in­crease than the 17% hike in truck traf­fic on In­ter­state 80 over Don­ner Pass.

Traf­fic could dou­ble by 2040, ac­cord­ing to a Cal­trans study.

The project’s three sec­tions, com­ing east from Bak­ers­field, are 2.63 miles in the vicin­ity of Bena Road, es­ti­mated to cost $32 mil­lion in to­day’s dol­lars; 3.03 miles of road­way from just west of Bealville Road to near Hart Flat at $33 mil­lion; and 2.46 miles on each side of Broome Road at an es­ti­mated $40 mil­lion,

Each sec­tion in­volves “(l)arge cuts and fills and a large need for new right of way,” the pro­posal notes.
