Traffic Problems on I-80 and Garden Highway Increase Due to Amazon Trucks
Traffic along Interstate 80 and the Garden Highway in Natomas has gotten a lot worse since Amazon constructed a 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center in 2017. In addition to the dozens of delivery trucks that leave the center each day on their rounds, the facility employs 2,000 workers, which also adds to the congestion. Residents along Garden Highway are not at all happy about the increase in traffic. One member of the Garden Highway Community Association reported that he had counted up to 32 of Amazon’s delivery trucks traveling in a row. This highlights the growth of Natomas and the other counties near Sacramento and increasing traffic problems.
