SURFRIDER FOUNDATION ISSUES STATEMENT ON TOLL ROAD COMPLETION AND JOBS
September 15 2011
In response to the TCA's recent claims, the Surfrider Foundation has issued the following statement:
"During the 2008 California Coastal Commission consistency hearing in Del Mar, Transportation Corridor Agencies CEO Tom Margro himself testified that the estimated amount of labor required for a widening of the existing I-5 was at least comparable to, if not greater than, the proposed extension to SR-241. By stymying the I-5 widening project in favor of the SR-241 extension, the TCA are not only inhibiting job growth, they are continuing to pursue more costly and less effective solutions to South Orange County's traffic woes."
