STA, in partnership developed a partnership with the Solano Economic Development Corporation (EDC) to study the economic impacts as a result of major transportation projects on the I-80 Corridor. The I-80 Corridor Project Analyses was initiated in August 2017 in anticipation of several new grant programs at the regional, state and federal level, including funding provided by Senate Bill 1 (SB1). Transportation infrastructure projects have economic impacts based on both construction and use once completed. Three Solano Transportation Authority (STA) projects include:
• I-80 Westbound Cordelia Truck Scales Improvements;
• I-80/I-680/SR12 Interchange Improvements; and
• I-80 Express Lanes Addition

The goal of the l-80/1-680/1-780 Major Investment and Corridor Study is to develop a long range, multi-modal transportation plan for the 1-80, 1-680 and 1-780 corridors in Solano County. Interstates 80, 680 and 780 form the backbone of Solano County’s roadway network. According to projections by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), the population of Solano County will grow by 45 percent between 2000 and 2025, and transportation demands on the County’s freeway network are expected to increase accordingly. If transportation improvements are not pursued within the study corridors in this timeframe, forecasts predict dramatic increases in vehicular congestion and delay. These increases in vehicular congestion are projected to be the worst on the segments of 1-80 through Fairfield and Vacaville, with peak hour delays of greater than one-half hour in some sections.

The 2018 California State Rail Plan, the state’s strategic plan for creating a coordinated, statewide rail network, identified a “Solano County Hub” to link Capitol Corridor, future Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) trains, and regional buses. This report analyzed potential rail station locations along the Union Pacific Railroad/SMART corridor within Solano County to determine a recommended location for the proposed Solano County Hub. The study recommends the current location of the Suisun-Fairfield Capitol Corridor Station as the SMART-Capitol Corridor station site. In addition, the report provides a range of station options for another station site in the Cordelia area in the City of Fairfield that could be considered in the update of the City’s General Plan.
