AB 287 (Holden) State Highway Route 710: advisory committee.

Position:Watch
Status:Policy Committees
Summary:
Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of all state highways and associated property. Existing law designates and describes state highway routes, and also describes the state highway routes in the California freeway and expressway system, including all of Route 710 in the County of Los Angeles.
 
This bill would encourage the Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, to consult with local governments of cities and areas along the State Route 710 North corridor regarding development of the State Route 710 North project area, as specified, and would require the department to seek alternatives for the development of the State Route 710 North project area from those local governments that improve air quality and public health, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve traffic safety, address projected traffic volumes, address projected growth in population, and create jobs. The bill would require the department, if appropriate and feasible, to implement any development alternative agreed upon by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and those local governments, in a manner consistent with applicable law. The bill would require the department to report to the Legislature on the progress of the State Route 710 North project on or before January 1, 2020.
 
The bill would also limit the portion of Route 710 included in the California freeway and expressway system to the portion between Route 1 and Route 10.
