Pittsburg at Crossroads with Regional Transportation Group over Funds

Pittsburg says it will withdraw from a regional transportation fee-collection agency unless its contributions are spent on projects involving the city....Pittsburg leaders say regional road projects that would affect their city have not received a proportionate amount of funding....Pittsburg joined the group when it was created in 1994 in part to fund the James Donlon extension, a planned expressway through the hills of undeveloped land south of Pittsburg. That project aims to give East Contra Costa commuters an alternate route while taking thousands of cars off city streets like Buchanan Road.
