One of the most congested Bay Area highways is set to see huge changes — and a toll
In an article titled, “One of the most congested Bay Area highways is set to see huge changes — and a toll,” written by Jessica Flores. She says, “Drivers on Highway 37, the narrow and chronically congested commuter route through fragile North Bay wetlands, could see grinding rush-hour trips between I-80 in Solano County and Highway 101 in Marin County cut at least in half by a project that will widen a key stretch within just a few years.
But the plan includes adding a toll along the expanded part of the 21-mile-long highway to help cover the $430 million price tag — a detail that prompted anger and concern this week from residents who say those who will bear the brunt are those who can least afford it.
