Consultants expect current traffic congestion to worsen as the number of vehicles using the corridor returns to pre-recession levels. Additionally, vehicle use of the corridor is expected to grow in the future.

A second meeting will be held on October 5, 2015 after a meeting with stakeholders. The location will be announced later.
