San Luis Obispo County, CA: Improvements to make Hwy 46 East safer could be put on hold

Five people have died in the last year in car crashes near the Cholame Y.

Now efforts to make that area of Highway 46 safer, may have hit a roadblock.

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham says the state is looking at taking money from making making the area east the “Y” four lanes and instead using it for a railway project.

Tuesday night his office read this letter in front of the California Transportation Commission in hopes of changing their minds.

Highway 46 East near the Cholame Y is a roadway that’s worrisome for a lot of Northern San Luis Obispo County drivers.
