SANDAG and Caltrans will host a virtual public meeting for anyone who lives, works, or travels along the Kumeyaay Corridor, which runs along I- 8. The community is invited to provide input on transportation needs and opportunities which will be used to help develop a comprehensive set of safe, sustainable, and equitable transportation solutions.

The Kumeyaay Corridor Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan (CMCP) studies a two-mile-wide area of the east-west transportation corridor along I- 8. The study area extends through parts of the cities of San Diego, Santee, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, El Cajon, and the ancestral and unceded lands of the Kumeyaay people.

The Kumeyaay Corridor plan is one of 11 CMCPs SANDAG and Caltrans are planning for in coordination with agency partners and local city governments. These plans offer data-driven solutions to reduce congestion, support climate action initiatives, generate transportation choices, create neighborhood enhancement projects, and increase access for residents, commuters, visitors, and goods movement. CMCPs include all travel modes in a defined corridor, including roadways, transit, bikeways, and more. CMCPs turn the vision and transportation priorities of the Regional Plan into reality by developing corridor specific projects and programs.
