RCTC is sensitive to how the 91 Project will affect residents and businesses near the freeway. Widening a roadway through a fully developed area creates many challenges, not least of which is buying the land needed for improvements.
The size of the project requires the purchase of a number of properties — either in part or in full. Temporary and permanent easements also will be established with some property owners. RCTC works with project planners and designers to minimize how much property needs to be acquired and the extent to which properties are affected.
