SAN FRANCISCO, CA - With the San Pablo Lytton Casino seeking Vegas-style slot machines, and two more Indian casinos in the planning stages, the West Contra Costa Transportation Advisory Board issued their study report on the impact of new traffic created by these casinos.
A traffic study by the West Contra Costa Transportation Board was funded by Contra Costa and Marin counties to estimate the traffic impact of the proposed Sugar Bowl Casino and an expanded San Pablo Lytton Casino. It studied 46 intersections and nearby stretches of Interstate 80.
The findings show by 2011, 13 of the 46 intersections would score an E or F. An F means traffic demand exceeds capacity. By 2030, 45 would get an E or F.
The federal government already completed a similar study for Sugar Bowl and
found far lower estimates of the regional traffic
