The regular yearly 2 percent increase in the fee home builders pay to fund congestion relief work in the transportation area is set for July 1st. Freeway route traffic has grown during the years the city council raised the fee started in 2008 to cover the 2,000 dollars the city paid on road and interchange improvements needed to handle the road travel each living unit's residents add to traffic.

Home builders pay the development impact fee at the time they get a building permit.

Fees for the Regional Transportation Congestion Improvement Program are in a city fee schedule the city first made in 2008, the year the RTCIP was started. Road improvemeents on the high volume routes between freeways, and the routes between the road thoroughfares used to travel across a region, keep traffic in a region mobile.

The collected fees totalled 2.9 million dollars in 2013. Fees that fund a typical RTCIP project pays for construction work costed at one-third the value San DIegans gain in handling the growth in regional traffic. The city has used RTCIP money to pay for Friars Road 163 freeway construction costs. Mission Valley traffic tie ups were relieved by the multi-million dollar interchange project.

Workers widen roads, add turn lanes, and change traffic signal timing to prevent overcrowding on the major roadways in San Diego.
