ON TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS IN SOUTH COUNTYSouth Bay to Sorrento Project Study to Analyze Travel Along I-5 and I-805  

SANDAG and Caltrans District 11 are seeking public input to inform the development of a Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan, which will explore potential solutions to support climate initiatives, increase travel options, and address traffic congestion between the South Bay and Sorrento Valley – one of the most heavily traveled corridors in San Diego County. 

Major transportation facilities that pass through the 28-mile study area include I-5, I-8, and I-805, as well as State Routes 52, 54, 94, and 905. The study area also includes major arterials and the Bayshore Bikeway. Existing transit services include the COASTER, the Trolley, multiple Rapid lines, and more than 25 local bus lines.

The plan will evaluate all travel modes and transportation facilities in the corridor – highways and freeways, parallel and connecting roadways, transit (bus, Rapid, light rail, intercity rail, etc.), pathways, and bikeways. 

SANDAG and Caltrans project team members will host “virtual office hours” this summer to provide project information, take comments, and respond to individual questions. Community members can register here for English or Spanish office hours.

Feedback on potential transportation solutions can be submitted through an interactive map as well as three dynamic story maps that demonstrate how social equity, resilience, and future conditions are being considered in the study. Through these tools, public input will be collected to inform the planning and prioritization of project options in the South Bay to Sorrento corridor.

Comments can be submitted through the virtual engagement hub in English or Spanish until Monday, July 12, 2021. Sign up to receive project updates and information about future meetings.

The South Bay to Sorrento Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan is anticipated to be finalized in late 2021. For more information about the CMCPs, visit sandag.org/CMCP.

Our Commitment to Equity  We hold ourselves accountable to the communities we serve. We acknowledge we have much to learn and much to change; and we firmly uphold equity and inclusion for every person in the San Diego region.

We have an obligation to eliminate disparities and ensure that safe, healthy, accessible, and inclusive opportunities are available to everyone. In 2021, SANDAG will develop an equity action plan that will inform how we plan, prioritize, fund, and build projects and programs; frame how we work with our communities; define how we recruit and develop our employees; guide our efforts to conduct unbiased research and interpret data; and set expectations for companies and stakeholders that work with us. We are committed to creating a San Diego region where every person who visits, works, and lives can thrive. 

COVID-19 Response  To protect the health and safety of everyone, SANDAG offices are closed to the public. Most employees are teleworking to provide essential services and continue progress on critical regional projects. We continue to monitor COVID-19 in the region and follow guidance from the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency
