The Californian congress finally make the right decision. There are three major high ways connecting Southern and Northern California , the High way 5, 101 and 99. And the two major high ways which connect the large cities between Southern and Northern California are High way 5 and 101, both are very very crouded. I used to drive between Southern and Northern California every week, it will take 8 to 9 hours driving from Southern California to Northern California due to road construction from Backerfield , and it is exhausted and time consuming , and wasting. Besides, it is now very crowded on Highway 5, and in the next 10 years , as California population continues too grow, High way 5 will be a parking lot.
