San Diego Looks to Cram 50 Years of Work into 10

While transportation activists in Los Angeles are getting behind a plan to cram 30 years of transportation projects into a decade, environmentalists in nearby San Diego want to do 50 years worth in the same amount of time.

The L.A. plan is known as "30/10", and is being pushed by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. San Diego environmentalists are calling for their own version of that plan, but their will be the "50-10". Streetsblog LA explains.

"Brought to you by the Save our Forest and Ranchlands (SOFAR) and the Cleveland National Forest Foundation (CNFF), "50-10″ is an attempt to influence the "2050 Regional Transportation Plan" being proposed by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG). Advocates are calling on the agency to build all of its planned transit projects for the next fifty years in the next ten and to leave the highway projects for another day. If the agency falls short of the ten year goal goal, then it would hold off on any highway expansion projects until the local transit network is completely built out."
