Voters need to know the 710 Freeway is being built for use by the LA/LB ports for "GOODS MOVEMENT". http://www.everythinglongbeach.com/metro-transportation-projects-2011/ In this article, Doug Failing FROM METRO gave information to the reporter explaining that while 18 projects” in the works “are designed primarily to give people a better commute” – 3 other projects; the I-710 south, 710 NORTH gap closure, the High Desert Corridor are intended to “ADDRESS THE DEMANDS OF COMMERCE — specifically goods movement” (this means trucks) The 3% figure (lie) they are giving us now is based on the trucks currently using the route (because there is no freeway past Valley Blvd.) After the ports expand, quadrupling DAILY TRUCK TRIPS to 140,000... it wont be a measly 3% using their “specifically goods movement” corridor. Also, is everyone aware that the tunnel will have no on or off ramps? It’s obviously not intended for local traffic congestion relief (another aspect Metro doesn’t advertise). Plus check out the Tolling: http://www.ci.south-pasadena.ca.us/transportation/PDFs/2008%20Draft%20RTP%20Tunnel%20Financial%20Assessment.pdf Pg 4 “Trucks would pay an average of $15.23”-… this is how they recoup the cost. Unless it's used as a trucking corridor they wont be able to conclude a Public Private Partnership deal. Tolling is how they recoup the cost. Unless it's used as a trucking corridor they wont be able to conclude a Public Private Partnership deal.

Part 2 Quote from Metro regarding increased truck traffic from the ports: http://www.metro.net/projects_studies/images/final-2009-LRTP.pdf page Sec1:42 5th paragraph "This trade activity, in turn, will result in DAILY PORT-generated TRUCK traffic increasing from 60,000 in 2005 to 140,000 truck trips PER DAY by 2030 despite significant efforts by the Ports to increase on-dock rail capacity and usage." http://www.metro.net/projects_studies/images/2009_lrtp_techdoc.pdf PG 18 "Currently, goods movement-related traffic is growing at a faster rate than that of automobiles. DAILY TRUCK TRAFFIC on I-710 ALONE is expected to increase from 38,000 to _approximately 90,000 trucks A DAY by the year 2035."

Part 3 The 710 Tunnel will be a tolled freeway. Tolled freeway costs can skyrocket: http://news.yahoo.com/states-looking-tolls-pay-highways-161604357.html;_ylc=X3oDMTNuNGRpcmEyBF9TAzIxNDYwMjEzNzMEYWN0A21haWxfY2IEY3QDYQRpbnRsA3VzBGxhbmcDZW4tVVMEcGtnAzg1ZGFmYWVmLTc1MDMtMzc2My1hYjQzLThhMjVlZjA3N2M2NARzZWMDbWl0X3NoYXJlBHNsawNtYWlsBHRlc3QD;_ylv=3 5th to last paragraph: “Some tolling agencies could also use "a dose of sunshine," Baxandall said. Because many are quasi-governmental, public disclosure, open meeting and other transparency rules don't always apply, he said. As a result, they frequently operate out of public sight, creating opportunities for corruption or manipulation by industry, he said.” 3rd to last paragraph: “The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey recently raised cash fares on six Interstate bridges and tunnels to $12 for CARS. By 2015, it will cost a five-axle TRUCK paying cash $105 to cross between New York and New Jersey, three times as much as for any other bridge or tunnel in the country, according to the American Trucking Association.”

Part 4 Having attended the outreach meetings that Metro has been hosting about the EIR we have learned that they are not looking at the alternatives as they have promised. The EIR is a joke. What is taking place right now appears fraudulent. And political proponents are either asleep at the switch or in on the deal. Here are 3 alternatives that the ports could use instead of killing our area with CARGO TRUCK induced CONGESTION and pollution: 1) the GRID - a sorting and zero-emission container supply chain http://planetforward.org/idea/the-grid-project-green-rail-intelligent-development/ 2) CargoWay - flexible (CNG/electric) trams that travel on both roads and rail lines. http://www.megarail.com/pdf/CRLBLA-7a.pdf 3) Freight Shuttle – Electric powered transporters over elevated guideways. http://www.freightshuttle.com/
