T.J. Orr, San Clemente
Thankfully, no one in our household continues to commute to the Inland Empire. However, as the toll road authority now considers alternate routing of the connection between the 241 and Interstate 5, they are overlooking a major, existing and obvious issue with the 241 connection up north with the 91. Traffic there during commuting hours is always crawling for several miles.
Unless this congestion is resolved, there is little point to putting even more traffic on the 241 by a new, direct connection between the I-5 and 241 through San Juan Capistrano or San Clemente, which poses its own issues for each of these communities. An “end to end” solution is needed.
