The purpose of the I-80 SMART Corridor Project is to enhance motorist safety and reduce traffic congestion on one of the busiest freeways in the Bay Area. Spanning multiple jurisdictions, I-80 is a major route for commuters and transit services and is crucial to the transport of goods into and out of the Bay Area. The project will significantly reduce primary and secondary accidents, improve traffic flow along the corridor, integrate the interstate with local arterial systems, and reduce cut-through traffic and driving times.
