Fifty-three properties owned by Caltrans have gone back on the market after years of being state-owned rentals. The properties were once reserved to be demolished for the possible 710 freeway extension, but Caltrans now says they are outside the footprint of the five remaining options being studied by the agency to complete the freeway. Caltrans was also prompted to sell the homes by a state law passed last year.
