San Clemente officials argue proposed toll road extension would cost $2 billion, make traffic worse

The Orange County Register » San Clemente officials on Wednesday struck back against proposals to extend a toll road through their city or adjacent wilderness areas, releasing a study they said shows the project would be a costly boondoggle that wouldn’t improve traffic. The Transportation Corridor Agencies is exploring several options for a new north-south corridor that could ease congestion on I-5 by connecting drivers to the 241 toll road.
