BEACHWOOD CANYON NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

EXPANSION OF 101 FREEWAY

February 2004: We will be publishing updates on this subject soon. 

Here is the letter that was sent for the Workshop on Monday, May 5, 2003:

Dear Neighbors:

A public workshop has been scheduled by CalTrans to present their proposals to date with respect to their plans to expand capacity on the 101 Freeway from Thousand Oaks through Vermont Avenue.

As many of you are aware, CalTrans has been examining five alternative proposals for the expansion.  Four of the five would necessitate the physical widening of the 101 through the Cahuenga Pass, and the fifth proposal (dubbed the "Do Nothing" proposal) would leave the existing freeway as is.  While CalTrans' representatives have maintained that they have no current intention to partially or totally condemn our surface street access through the pass, they have also been unable to explain how they intend to widen the 101 without doing exactly that.  Many residents have also become increasingly concerned with the possibility that the freeway will be double-decked through the pass, which would mean the construction of a 40-foot high HOV lane over the existing freeway.  This would obviously have a devastating effect on the surrounding residential community in terms of quality of life and property values.

To learn more about the freeway expansion project, and to hear your questions addressed directly by CalTrans, please plan to attend this workshop:

Arrive any time between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
