Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham says he has met with the executive director of Caltrans regarding recent crashes on the Cholame Y.  

Last week, Cunningham wrote a letter to Caltrans wanting to improve the safety of highways 41 and 46. 

"I personally met with the CalTrans Executive Director. I was glad to see that he is taking the problem seriously and understands the gravity of the situation," Cunningham said in a press release. "We discussed some ideas for short term safety measures pending the long term interchange project at the 41/46 ‘Y.’ People call this stretch of highway ‘Blood Alley’ and we need to end that reputation.  I will continue to advocate for improved road safety and doing everything we can to save lives.”

Also at the meeting was Vice-Chairman of the Assembly Transportation Committee Vincent Fong of Bakersfield and Assemblyman Devon Mathis of Visalia.
