SR 52 open to motorists
Opened to traffic on March 29, the new road creates a straight shot to the coast for many East County residents and travelers, offering easy access to job centers and recreational activities.

SANDAG issues $1 million in Healthy Community Grants
As part of a nationwide campaign to combat rising obesity rates, SANDAG recently issued $1.04 million in grants under the Healthy WorksSM program, a countywide campaign aimed at combatting rising obesity rates in the San Diego region by planning communities in ways that support increased physical activity and access to healthy foods.

Public meetings planned for Mid-City Rapid Bus
SANDAG staff will hold two public meetings in April to update the community on plans for the Mid-City Rapid Bus project, a new high-frequency service that will quickly carry passengers between Downtown San Diego and San Diego State University via Park and El Cajon boulevards.

May is Bike to Work month
There are many ways to get involved with San Diego’s Bike to Work 2011 activities. Give one or all of them a spin!

Request a speaker on the 2050 RTP
What do planners mean when they talk about “smart growth?” And how will the San Diego region address greenhouse gas emissions in the future? Just what is a sustainable community? What might our highway and transit systems look like in 2020, 2035, and 2050? A SANDAG 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) speaker can cover all of these topics and more.

Walk, Ride, and Roll program launched
The new Walk, Ride, and Roll to School campaign aims to increase the number of children walking and biking to school, raise awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and help combat childhood obesity, all while improving pedestrian and bicycle safety and air quality.
