Auto Museum displays “Flash” CHP exhibit

Auto Museum displays “Flash” CHP exhibit

Don’t blink! 

The California Automobile Museum, in partnership with the California Highway Patrol Museum in West Sacramento, is proud to present a fun “flash” CHP exhibit on display now through Sunday, March 5, 2017.  

The short-term exhibit will showcase “flashy” highway patrol cars – such as a 1973 Dodge Coronet, a 1992 Mustang, a rare 1999 Volvo S270 with a high-performance turbo engine and a brand new Dodge Charger. Some of the cars on display are typical of CHP cars at the time of their use, but the exhibit also highlights the innovative ways the cars were used by the CHP.  In addition, a number of iconic motorcycles – including a 1973 Moto Guzzi and a brand new CHP Harley-Davidson – will also be on display.  All of the eye-catching vehicles included in the exhibit demonstrate the CHP’s compelling history from the past to the present.

The new program will result in a reduction of 270 hours a month for restricted parking for city services in the pilot area.

Potential Yolo Rail Realignment Offers Positive Economic Benefits

Potential Yolo Rail Realignment Offers Positive Economic Benefits

Yolo County, the cities of Davis, West Sacramento and Woodland, and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency are excited to announce completion of the Yolo Rail Realignment Economic Benefits Study.  

Prepared with support from a 2014 U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, the study analyzes the economic potential of relocating the rail line that runs through the centers of Davis and Woodland, and extending rail service to industrial areas in Woodland, the west side of West Sacramento and the Port of West Sacramento.  Study findings show rail relocation could generate substantial economic benefit in Yolo County and align well with regional flood protection options currently being studied.
