The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) is a regional transportation planning body responsible for congestion and growth management in the county. For each sub-region of Contra Costa, the CCTA prepares an action plan to assess the transportation issues within that area and outline a package of policies, objectives, and actions to address those issues.
CCTA recently updated the Lamorinda Action Plan. The draft of the Plan is available at the CCTA website. In addition to serving as a guide for transportation planning through the year 2040, this Plan also fulfills the three Lamorinda cities’ obligation to participate in cooperative planning for growth and traffic management on designated Routes of Regional Significance. In Lamorinda, there are three: State Route 24, Camino Pablo/San Pablo Dam Road, and Pleasant Hill Road north of the freeway. The BART route through Lamorinda is currently proposed to be designated as a fourth.
Earlier preliminary drafts of the Plan have been reviewed by Lafayette’s Circulation Commission and City Council. Questions about the Plan can be submitted to James Hinkamp, Transportation Planner, at the Lafayette city offices address, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
