The Caltrans and OCTA proposal to widen the I-405 between the SR-73 and I-605 had an option for toll lanes that was soundly rejected by the community. This option was removed from the proposal. Now that OCTA has a new board they have reinstated a toll road option. The community sentiment has not changed about toll roads. Please choose Option 1 (2 new general use lanes), and remove all options that include Toll Roads. Please respect the decision of the last board and the community at large to keep Toll Roads out of this Improvement Project.
