Round and around and around we go.
Tell me now, tell me now, you know. State Route 227 (aka Broad Street) near the airport can be a clusterf*ck from time to time. Aaaaand by that, we mean pretty much e’ry day. This hasn’t gone unnoticed, so our friends over at SLOCOG worked with Caltrans and local government to identify a preferred concept that can be implemented in the future with the meager transportation funds available.
