State Route 94 Expansion Project
Caltrans in planning to expand freeway SR94 through Golden Hill. This expansion will likely have a huge impact on our community and it may include increased noise, pollution, traffic, and more.
A Proposed Solution
With these planned changes comes the opportunity for our community to participate in the plan and decide what is best for the neighborhood. The possibilities include the installation of a park lid covering over the freeway between 22nd and 25th Streets.
On Saturday, June 01, 2013 the Greater Golden Hill Community Development Corporation held a meeting to discuss the State Route 94 Freeway Expansion Project and its impact on Golden Hill. The meeting took place at the San Diego Japanese Christian Church in the Yoshiro Hall portion of their Church facility.
We’d like to thank those of you attended the Community Meeting for the SR94 Express Lane Expansion Project! We had a fantastic turnout, and the participation from the community was essential to making it a success.
More than 85 people were in attendance along with representation of elected officials: Councilmember David Alvarez, Martha Zapata (Councilmember Alvarez’s representative), Linda Perine (Mayor Filner’s representative), and Chris Ward (Senator Block’s representative). Three media groups were also represented: Uptown News, San Diego Free Press, and KPBS. In addition, we had members of the Golden Hill and Sherman Heights planning groups and CDCs.
