Easily Accessible Information Makes Drivers Aware of Other Commuting Options
Oceanside CA – Drivers on the congested Interstate 5 will now see COASTER travel times posted on Caltrans’ changeable message signs. With support from NCTD, Caltrans is posting such information to encourage drivers to use public transit, particularly given summer congestion on San Diego freeways. Signs will be posted on Tuesdays in July and August.
The four changeable message signs that will host these signs are located in Oceanside near the exit to State Route 76, in Del Mar near the Via de la Valle exit, in the northern part of the city of San Diego near the Genesee Avenue exit, and south of the Interstate 8 exit in downtown San Diego.
After August, Caltrans and NCTD will analyze the impact of these messages to help determine if such messages will be displayed on a continuous basis.
