HOW DO YOU SPELL RELIEF?
Tired of wasting hours sitting in trafďŹ c on Highway 101? Relief is on the way. You asked for a train, and a train you shall get. When it is fully built, SMART will provide clear sailing along the rail tracks that run from Cloverdale to Larkspur. Running at a projected 70 miles an hour in brand new, clean diesel trains, SMART will allow you to get off of 101 and still get where you need to go â€” for work or for fun. Or if you must drive, SMART will spell relief by easing the burden on our congested roadways. With a recently signed construction contract at favorable terms for SMART and $171 million in bond ďŹ nancing in December, SMART is delivering on its promise to create 1,000 jobs. We know itâ€™s hard to be patient, but SMART is an exceedingly complex project. Phase I alone between North Santa Rosa and San Rafael will require 38 miles of track, 9 stations, 1 tunnel (in addition to one already built last year), 20 bridges and 12 new trains. The project also includes train signaling and control, multiple construction and procurement contracts, and multi-layered regulatory, safety and quality hurdles. There is no prescription that will eliminate our trafďŹ c congestion tomorrow. But we are working hard every day on the cure. Before long, we will all be able to escape trafďŹ c by riding the SMART train â€” or walking and biking along the SMART pathway.
