A City of Sacramento public opinion survey about possible bridge construction has been completed. The Department of Transportation says more than three-quarters of respondents ranked a new crossing over the American River between Interstate 5 and State Route 160 as important or very important. Six out of ten people agreed a bridge should have vehicle, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian access.
Six percent said nothing new was needed.
The City says the survey of 600 respondents was unscientific, but it has already established an advisory committee with more than two dozen environmental and American River Parkway groups.
The Transportation Department plans to formally present the results of the survey to the City Council in April.
