Troubled commuters on Highway 4 through Antioch are watching traffic relief, as it's being built alongside the highway. State Route 4 is being widened from 4 to 8 lanes. Two of those lanes, one in each direction, will be for car pools. But major traffic relief is also soon to be visible as EBart is constructed. EBart will add ten miles of track from Pittsburg Bay Point to a new Hillcrest station in Antioch.
Groundbreaking for that station has just taken place.
Together, the Highway and Bart projects total over a billion dollars in transportation improvements in a joint project between MTC, the California Transportation Commission, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, the Federal Highway Administration and Caltrans. MTC contributed $283 million in bridge tolls and other funds for eBart, or 60% of the cost. But it may have never gotten off the ground if voters had not approved a 25 year extension of a county transportation sales tax in 2004.
