This article provides a recap of primary findings from a report released in April 2013 by the nonprofit Pacific Research Institute. The report provides a critical review of the Irvine based Transportation Corridor Agencies which oversees 51 miles of tollways, the biggest system of its type in the state. The study looked at the economic health of the San Joaquin Hills and Foothill-Eastern corridors, two toll networks that were once touted as an innovative way to build public highways without taxpayer money. After a thorough examination of these tollways, the study concluded that TCA’s leadership postpone a current road project and stop borrowing money until state authorities can thoroughly review the operations.
