Traffic is a major source of frustration in the Tri-Valley and I-580 is one of the worst offenders.

On Tuesday, Nov. 12, 6:30 pm in Livermore City Council Chambers (3575 Pacific Ave.) the city of Livermore invites residents to come out and hear about a potential new transportation corridor that may ease traffic along I-580 and Vasco Road.

According to the TriLink website, the study on State Route 239 or "TriLink" aims at looking at the possibility of creating a transportation link between Brentwood to the I-580/205 corridor near Tracy with improvements such as 
  • an airport connector between Vasco Road and the Byron Highway;
  • a south link along the Byron Highway from the airport south to I-205 near Tracy;
  • a north link from SR-4 south of Brentwood to the Byron Highway north of the airport;
  • an I-580 link south from SR-4;
  • a transit link connection to existing or planned facilities; and
  • new bicycle facilities within the corridor.
The study was paid for with federal dollars allocated under the 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act, known as SAFETEA-LU. 

The estimated capital cost of the TriLink improvements are in excess of $750 million, according to TriLink (State Route 239) Feasibility Draft Study Report released in September. 

Construction of the project, if approved, would take place over the next 30 years.
