A Report on the Planning, Operation and Funding of California’s Highway System

Report #88, March 1988

OVERVIEW

California’s ability to meet its transportation needs are being eroded by inflation, project delivery delays and project cost increases.

This report contains eight findings and 16 recommendations, which include urging the State to aggressively pursue options to reduce congestion in urban areas, and to give priority in funding to urban and suburban counties that implement transportation system management techniques. In addition, the Commission recommends the establishment of an ad hoc commission to examine long-term needs and to develop a strategic plan through the year 2010.
