Will this project improve traffic?

The Espola Road Safety Improvement Project will not impact the current road – it will stay as is. The Poway City Council’s commitment to this is so strong that in October 2013 they went on record with a resolution confirming that it does not intend to widen Espola Road.

 But even though this project doesn’t target widening the road to accommodate more cars, it’s still expected to have a positive impact on traffic – especially when congestion is at its worst. More than 2,400 students attend Poway High and this road is the only route to and from school for a significant portion of neighborhoods within its boundaries. Constructing a pedestrian-friendly pathway will likely result in more students walking or biking to school, which in turn will reduce the number of cars on the road during peak times.
