This image shows the approximate path of the highway going through
gorgeous parts of the Thomas Ranch.


A few points that we Pittsburg citizens WILL be concerned with:

If you live near the Thomas Ranch, you WILL be adversely affected by increased traffic.
If you live in Pittsburg, you WILL pay for the bypass.
If you live in Pittsburg, your views of the hills WILL be destroyed forever.

Please take the time to read about the bypass, then, decide for yourself.
