La Canada Flintridge adopted a formal resolution this week opposing the approval or expenditure of funds for the SR-710 proposed tunnel project as well as the surface freeway route. Glendale City Council passed a similar resolution three weeks ago.
A Facebook message from Jan SooHoo of No 710 Freeway Tunnel says:
…the City “…finds that both alternatives are ineffective, 20th century solutions for the existing regional congestion problems which require 21st century solutions.”
Also in the resolution, the City calls on Metro, Caltrans and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) to “…find other new, effective alternatives to these projects, including those alternatives using rail as the mode of transportation, which will truly solve the region’s congestion problems.”
In doing so, the City has joined Glendale in formalizing its opposition to the SR-710 extension.
