Yesterday, Caltrans received unofficial word that a complaint would be filed against this project in Federal Court. Below is a statement:
While it is Caltrans policy to not comment on any pending litigation, what we can say is that Caltrans is confident that our environmental assessment for the 197/199 Safe STAA Access Project is complete and accurate. Great care was taken in the development of this project to provide industry-standard STAA truck access while improving safety for all users. Providing good stewardship of California’s natural resources is one of our most important goals. This project successfully provides a balanced approach that improves safety and minimizes environmental impacts, while improving efficient goods movement through this area of Del Norte County.
