The System Analysis Study of Focus Routes 101, 152, & 156 (SAS) investigated long-term improvement strategies for moving east-west traffic more efficiently through the northern San Benito County – southern Santa Clara County area. For each of five improvement scenarios, the study examined travel patterns, traffic flows, and congestion on Caltrans Focus Routes 101, 152, and 156, as well as on State Route 25 and major local roads. In addition, the SAS considered the benefits and costs of each scenario as well as the major environmental factors associated with each scenario.
The results of these investigations are presented below. The information is intended to aid decision-makers in developing improvement strategies. Further, the analysis results can be used as a resource for understanding travel patterns in the area.
