Speed Limits for PCH LCR

It's time for Caltrans to (re-) think traffic speeds posted on Laguna's arterial roads PCH and Laguna Canyon.   The UPS Store mishap is a case in point where fortunately no bystanders were injured. As the OTS rankings show, Laguna's arterial road users aren't always this lucky.       -LS

Not My ToLL Road

More car infrastructure from those who know what mobility option is best for you, the TCA TOLL ROAD through San Clemente and beyond.

TCA = Transportation Corridor Agencies

Excellent Website:

TCA Monthly Meeting 
Thursday, February 8 at 9:30 am – 1:30 pm 
125 Pacifica, Irvine, California 92618

Many people don’t know that if the Toll Road connects to the 5 freeway the TCA plans to extend managed toll lanes South to the San Diego County adding 2 more lanes to each side of the 5 freeway south to the county line destroying even more of San Clemente. Let’s not allow this agency run amok destroy South Orange County for special interests and lobbyists, the only ones to benefit.
