Traffic gridlock is the number one concern of many of our residents and businesses. It is a threat to the economic competitiveness of our businesses. It robs families of essential time together and pollutes the air we breathe. New roads and transit are important solutions, but they often require many years to implement. As we work on long-range strategies, the Leggett Administration is also committed to immediate action on a wide range of useful and practical actions that can reduce gridlock now. These solutions will require great creativity, regional collaboration, and the shared actions of residents, governments, and businesses.
