AAA Cites Two LA Bottlenecks Among the Country’s Worst

AAA today included two Los Angeles bottlenecks in its list of the country’s worst “commuter hotspots.” The Automobile Club of Southern California joined with the national office urging Congress to pass the federal transportation funding reauthorization bill so that the bottlenecks can be fixed. The 710 freeway and the 101-405 interchange are the two Los Angeles county roads that organization hopes the government will fix once Congress approves the transportation bill. “Southern California traffic is being squeezed by a healthy economy, a growing population and the fact that over one-quarter of the nation’s imported goods travel on our roads and rails,” said Dan Beal, the Auto Club’s managing director for public policy. “At the same time our traffic problems are compounding, the solutions are being stalled because we are in one of the worst budget crises in state history, and approval of the federal transportation funding bill has been delayed since 2003.”
