County Supervisors Consider United Bridge Partners SH 37 Toll Plan

Kenwood Press reports, “Sonoma County Supervisors listened intently to plans to address State Highway 37 congestion and rising ocean levels that are likely to submerge portions of the North Bay’s major traffic conduit.” United Bridge Partners (UBP), a private joint venture, has offered to build a tolled, two-lane causeway that would expand and raise a segment of the highway. A county transportation official told supervisors UBP’s proposal would require enabling legislation, but it will be considered along with “other possible funding solutions” because inaction is not a viable alternative.
