“I am outraged that the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) has decided to operate the I-680 Express Lanes all day long in the San Ramon Valley! As a local resident, I am concerned about the gridlock this will cause in my town and neighborhood.
As my elected representative, I urge you to operate the I-680 Express Lanes only during peak commute hours, not during off-peak hours. And I implore you to find funding to implement other currently unfunded I-680 traffic congestion mitigation projects.”
