Stop gridlock

When measured against how things are now, a tunnel to complete the 710 is projected to:

Reduce cut through traffic in local cities:

  • Remove over 80,000 daily trips from the local street system which was NEVER intended to bear this level of traffic, a reduction of 8.5%.
  • Reduce regional cut-through traffic from 24% of all cars on local streets (or approximately 1 of every 4 vehicles) to 10% (or 1 in 10 vehicles). 
  • Fewer congested intersections

Connect our freeway system for shorter commutes

  • 14,000 fewer car and truck miles will be driven daily

Create the best solution to reduce congestion

  • The tunnel option creates the maximum reduction in commute times of all options studied
  • 17% fewer cars and trucks will be stuck in traffic congestion

Projections show that the population in Los Angeles County will grow 33% from 9.8 million in 2004 to 13 million in 2040.  Traffic in the San Gabriel Valley alone will grow 37%.

If we don’t do something, we’ll be trapped by gridlock!
