BEHOLD THE SUPERCORRIDOR!!! Ever travelled the 5 between LA and SD and marveled at the open spaces, uh, I mean Camp Pendleton? The Sacramento Business Journal reports today that the growing economic and geographical closeness sprawl of the Bay Area and Sacramento region will be explored during a summit Thursday at the University of California Davis.

The summit is free and open to the public, but space is limited and pre-registration required. For more information, go to

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Room 232 of the ARC building at 1 Shields Ave. on the UC Davis campus.


The focus of the meeting seems to be on transit and land use issues in the corridor. Of course more highways means more cars. More/better transit means more density in the corridor.

    I’m kind of confused as to why I’ve read about this so many times. Two bigass urban areas + 90 miles’ distance + time = one biggerass 90 mile long urban area. The east half of the country has a handful of these megalopolses as well. You can already get to Hollister without being far from a Taco Bell, and that’s even farther than Sacramento.
