We’ll take the rest of this editorial to remind readers about the improvements taking place on the Oxnard portion of Highway 101.
On Oct. 7, Assemblyman Pedro Nava, Mayor Tom Holden and others were set to announce the official switch of the state-controlled portion of Highway 1 to Rice Avenue.
This represents a big step forward in designating Rice as the major thoroughfare for transporting goods from the Port of Hueneme to Highway 101.
As a result, trucks no longer will move through the center of Oxnard and Rice will become a better commercial artery serving the port and area businesses.
All of this comes as some naysayers want to shut Oxnard down and throw the keys to prosperity away through the Measure V traffic restrictions.
We say “yes” to moving the Highway 1 corridor and resounding “no” to Measure V.
