MILPITAS, CA-Work begins today on the expansion of I-880 to six lanes, a $60.4-million project expected to drastically improve commutes and business prospects in the area. Scheduled for completion in 2003, the project is being funded by the 1996 Measure B Transportation Improvement Plan, with help from state and federal agencies.

I-880 through the Milpitas corridor is one of the Bay Area’s most well-known bottleneck areas. John Pilger of the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Agency tells GlobeSt.com this will be extremely beneficial for commercial and business development in the area, as it will provide tremendous relief to commuters.

“Figures show that speeds in the area have slowed to about 9 mph,” said Pilger. “This project estimates to get that time up to about 51 mph, ultimately saving commuters about 18 minutes.”
