The City of Coronado had been studying ways to ease traffic congestion for at least 10 years and in the process had spent about $13.5 million. Most of the money spent to study the issue had come from federal and regional grants and toll revenues. The city itself had spent about $1 million on studies. Some of the suggested solutions that had arisen from these studies are for tunnels. One tunnel option that had been proposed would cost more than $500 million.
