I-80/I-680/SR-12 Groundbreaking

Construction officially began for Package 2A of the I-80/I-680/SR 12 Interchange Project at the virtual groundbreaking event near the Cordelia RV Center at 10am on Thursday, October 29th, co-hosted by STA and Caltrans. This $67 million construction project, funded largely by Senate Bill 1, will provide a two lane connection from SR 12 Jameson Canyon to I-80 in the East Bound direction. The project will improve traffic flow for commuters and freight by configuring ramps and access to local streets, increase safety, and is scheduled to be open to traffic in two years.
The virtual groundbreaking ceremony was hosted by STA Board Chair, Vacaville Mayor Ron Rowlett, Solano County Supervisor and STA Board member Jim Spering, and members of Caltrans Bay Area, and featured pre-recorded messages from Caltrans Bay Area Director Tony Tavares, Fairfield Mayor Harry Price, State Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Solano, and Rep. John Garamendi, D-Solano.
The project’s ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for December 2022. For more information on I-80/I-680/SR 12 Interchange Project: Package 2A, visit the Caltrans project website here.
STA and Sutter Solano Medical Center (SSMC) Vallejo Pilot Program Expands Medical Trip Concierge Program for Older Adults and ADA Residents

STA has recently formed a mobility partnership with Sutter Solano Medical Center (SSMC) to support the transportation needs of SSMC clients. The partnership between STA and SSMC is for a pilot program that provides a 50/50 cost sharing arrangement and supports the mobility needs of Solano County’s low income residents to and from the Sutter Solano Medical Center in Vallejo. SSMC case managers will be able to access the platform to register clients and arrange GoGo Grandparent rides to or from the Sutter Solano Medical Center in Vallejo.  
Update on Solano Mobility Programs

Since August, Solano Mobility extended its Medical Trip Concierge Program with GoGo Grandparent to include ADA eligible residents and expand the eligible trips for older adults (60 plus) to 20 rides per month for pharmacy and other essential trips. This led to 42 more Medical Trip Concierge Program trips and 68 new riders added in October. Three medical facilities in Antioch (John Muir Primary Care, Kaiser Permanent, and Sutter Delta Medical Center) were also added to the list of covered facilities to better service residents of Rio Vista. The Solano Mobility Call Center has assisted more than double the amount of callers since August.

The STA Board Welcomes New Members

Based on results of the 2020 election, the STA Board looks forward to welcoming and working with Mayors-elect Robert McConnell (City of Vallejo), Steve Young (City of Benicia), and Steven Bird (City of Dixon).
Upcoming 2021 DRAFT STA Legislative Platform 30-day Public Comment Period

At the upcoming Dec 9th Board Meeting, the 2021 STA DRAFT Legislative Platform is scheduled to be released by the STA Board for a 30-day Public Comment period. This sets STA’s priorities for State and Federal legislation and funding.
McCoy Creek Trail Phase 2 Project

The City of Suisun City has launched a short online community questionnaire about potential trail amenities, access points, and more. Due to the recent COVID-19 health emergency, this online questionnaire is taking place in lieu of an in-person public workshop. This questionnaire is available here and will be open until November 25.
The McCoy Creek Trail Phase 2 Project will provide a 3/4-mile multi-use paved path along McCoy Creek from Pintail Drive to Laurel Creek. The 10-foot wide concrete trail will extend the completed first phase which runs from the Central County Bikeway adjacent to Highway 12 along McCoy Creek to Pintail Drive. The McCoy Creek Trail will provide important and safe connections for community members who walk, bike or use other forms of self-propelled transportation through Suisun and offer community members of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in active recreation.
Safe Routes to School Staff Update

The Solano Safe Routes to School Program welcomes Sierra Minchaca as its new Program Coordinator. Sierra brings a wealth of experience having worked to support various agricultural and water conversation programs within cities and schools in Napa County. Sierra will provide marketing and education support to Solano County schools as we continue to promote walking/biking and safety among youth countywide.
