Ever since the San Diego (405) Freeway was finished in the Costa Mesa area, we could not understand why the California Department of Transportation did not complete the expansion from the Euclid Street interchange northward to relieve the bottleneck. Now that the plans have been put forth, I am vehemently against Alternative 3 for widening the 405. I do favor the second alternative over the first.
I think the voters who passed Measure M had no idea they would be voting in favor of toll lanes for the 405 between the San Gabriel (605) and the (73) Corona del Mar freeways. After the Orange County Transportation Authority and Caltrans reassured Costa Mesa several years ago that we would not have to go through any further freeway construction, I resent that you are now proposing an alternative that would make us have to do just that.
We use the Fairview Road bridge several times each day and do not want to see it demolished once again after you (OCTA) squandered $7 million of our tax money to rebuild it three years ago. How foolish is that? You seem to have no concern about the efficient use of our money.
