Public participation is vital in the review of this document.  This is their opportunity to provide comments on potential impacts and review all the proposed alternatives. Caltrans will then review and respond to all substantive comments to become part of the final environmental document.

The public is encouraged to attend and discuss questions and concerns with engineers, noise and traffic specialists and property agents.  Along with a comment table, Caltrans is providing a court reporter for those who wish to leave a verbal comment.
