Uneasy Rhetoric, another local blogger, has posted an appropriately scathing criticism of Sacramento Regional Transit's failure to reach out to commuters who will be inconvenienced by the Interstate 5 rebuilding project at the end of this month. Read his report here.
This is just one more example of RT's failure to communicate. A huge planned traffic tie-up and there's nothing on www.sacrt.com about it. Why?
I know from the RTDriver guy that RT is working on options for handling the extra load, including running more frequent light rail trains. And yet they insist on keeping this information to themselves.
The Natomas Buzz has info on the Natomas shuttle service during the I-5 construction.
This is one area where The Bee might actually be of some assistance. Check out www.sacbee.com/i5. The Bee plans to offer one-stop shopping online for info on the status of the work and ways of coping.
Yes, even on The Bee web page there's nothing about RT's plans other than references to vague plans to expand bus service. But if RT ever does announce something, one assumes it will end up there.
