The California Department of Transportation is seeking $65 million in state funds to improve Highway 12 - one of the single largest sums of money sought for the deadly Delta road in recent memory, officials said this week.

Should the money be approved, $55 million would go toward the highway's narrow and unforgiving Bouldin Island stretch.

    t&c, you truly are an idiot. I've said it in my past blogs and I'll say it one more time for you, moron. The only cure for Hwy. 12 is a center barrier and hopefully two lanes each way. I don't drive Hwy. 12 when the wineries let their sippers loose on that road. CHP needs to step up DUI enforcement on that area between the VanRuiten tasting room and I-5. The wine drunks are the biggest hazard on that stretch of the road.

    The wider shoulders will allow the POLICE to get the reckless driver pulled over, maybe arrested, making the highway a little bit safer! It also will allow for ambulance and police to bypass a line of cars backed up from an accident, thereby providing valuable assistance and maybe, just maybe SAVING A LIFE... "Your Life"! Why must you always try to pick apart the positive things we as a community need? Please tell us because we are waiting, but can't hear you!

    Now Now taxpayer & citizen there you go again! Since when did you among all your other gifted talents become a transportation engineer Expert? Drivers passing each other recklessly is the problem so your answer falls flat on its face! Please leave the steps needed to protect drivers from each other to the Experts!

    55 million for wider shoulders on Hwy.12? What a bargain. Here we go with the band aids again. What a waste of taxpayer money and legislators' time. 2 lanes in each direction and a center barrier are the only solution to this problem, once and for all.
