North Coast Corridor Overview

The North Coast Corridor (NCC) Program offers a balanced transportation system to provide travelers choices for the future while enhancing the quality of life for residents. The NCC Program is comprised of three primary focus areas – the Interstate 5 (I-5) Express lanes Project, coastal rail and transit enhancements, and environmental protection and coastal access improvements.

The NCC Program represents a more than $6 billion investment in the San Diego economy over the next few decades, including more than $250 million to preserve and enhance sensitive coastal habitat and improve coastal access. 

The NCC Program:

  • improves regional mobility and coastal access
  • focuses highway capacity improvements on facilities that move more people, not just cars
  • improves reliability and capacity along the rail corridor for intercity, commuter and freight rail services
  • protects and enhances environmental resources and improves coastal access

The NCC Program is included in TransNet, the voter approved, half-cent sales tax initiative that helps fund transportation projects in the region.
