Breaking News: Judge Puts Kibosh on California HSR Route
As reported by the San Jose Mercury News, Judge Kenny ruled that the rail authority "...must rescind the Peninsula route to study how the traffic in the far South Bay would suffer if the tracks force the elimination of lanes on Monterey Highway. He said it also needs to examine how Peninsula residents and roads would be handicapped by freight trains running closer to properties."
Those close to the matter are feeling deja vu, because this judge made the same decision in 2008. The CAHSR Authority came back with new studies showing the same route was the best option, and the cities re-sued.
