Everyone in South Orange County will be affected but those who will be affected the most are our children. People who live in San Juan Capistrano, Ladera Ranch, Rancho Mission Viejo and San Clemente would be the ones who would be most impacted by the proposed Toll Routes.
What schools would the Routes affect?
Proposed Toll Road Route through San Clemente High School. Courtesy of Dylan CookThe Toll Roads run past 8 of our schools and some are within 500 feet. It has been proven that freeway pollution leads to increase in childhood asthma as well as Leukemia.
San Juan Hills High School would be near the Toll Road proposed route 6
Tesoro High School would be within 500 feet. They are planning on turning the current public free Los Patrones into a Toll Road
Esencia Elementary school in Ranhco Mission Viejo is set to open Fall of 2018 would be right next to a Toll Road. Why can’t they keep the Road a Free Public road we all pay taxes for?
Route 13, 14 & 17 would affect these schools: San Juan Hills High School, Vista Del Mar Elementary School, Marblehead Elementary School, Bernice Ayers Middle School, Truman Benedict Elementary School, and San Clemente High School.
In 2003, California passed a law that freeways can’t be constructed 500 feet from schools. Living near a freeway has detrimental effects on learning, lung capacity and higher risks of cancer.
What Neighborhoods would the routes affect?
Home values located close to Toll Roads are 10-30% lower than homes in communities not affected by Toll Roads.
Route 13: Coast 1,062 Homes, Shorecliffs 500 Homes, Forster Ranch 1,314 Homes, Del Cabo 50 Homes, & SeaPointe 258 Homes TOTAL 3,184 Homes

Here are some visual mockups of what it would look like. Forget your beautiful ocean views, it would be a ugly concrete jungle view.
What parks would they affect?
What Trails would they affect?
Our open space is at stake as two concrete freeways larger than The Golden Gate Bridge will be your new view as you hike your favorite ridge line trail.
