The heavy build-up of traffic from the Yucaipa Pointe development on Yucaipa’s extreme west side will impact drivers trying to negotiate the tight cluster of Yucaipa Boulevard, E Street and the Outer Highway that are all converging on the I-10 Freeway east and west.  Essentially all retail, city business and the high school are on the one street that has served as the heavily traveled east-west artery since the idea of a town began.  There will be a lot more retail businesses and housing to get to and to exit from at the nexus.  Of course there are the drivers who are using the I-10 simply to go to or come from work.  As it is the already-in-place myriad of fast food restaurants and gas stations slow traffic down.  We have 21st Century planning and building on an early 20th Century street layout.  Luckily, what the city describes as Historic Uptown Yucaipa (and the orphan-sited YPAC) will never be impacted as it’s too far away on the lonely east end of the Boulevard.
