SANDAG plan to cut 14 freeway and highway improvements to fund conversion of road lanes to dedicated bike lanes
SAN DIEGO ( KUSI) – Recently, San Diego County’s regional transportation planning agency, SANDAG, released a plan to cut 14 freeway and highway improvements and shift all of that money into “transit” for downtown San Diego and to fund conversion of road lanes to dedicated bike lanes.
SANDAG and its subsidiary MTS also propose higher taxes: both a massive Sales Tax hike and a “Congestion Tax” for anyone wanting to use the roads with all that money going to transit, not roads.
Despite a recent poll that even shows voters in the heavily urban areas of the City of San Diego overwhelmingly oppose these proposals by a whopping two-to-one margin, SANDAG and politicians continue to push Road Repair Raids and the Congestion Tax forward.
Carl DeMaio hosted a town hall to engage San Diegans about the issue and continue to fight back against the politicians who want to push these road raids.
