Highway 37 and sea level rise comes info focus
The future of the North Bay's Highway 37 is the subject of interest as it relates to sea level rise — flooding has already affected the highway causing its closure for 28 days in 2017.
The San Francisco Chronicle has taken a look at the issue in a recent story. MTC has also produced a video looking at Highway 37.
Highway 37 cuts through delicate wetlands but also provides a critical link between the Bay Area's northern counties. As many as 40,000 vehicles a day use the 21-mile highway that skirts the northern shore of San Pablo Bay, delivering commuters and goods.
In addition to climate change, traffic backups also continue to vex the corridor. A team approach has been developed to address the concerns. For more information visit https://scta.ca.gov/resilient37/.
