Regional Water Quality Control Board To Vote On Toll Road June 19th
Press Release from Surfrider

WHO:  Join Surfrider Foundation activists, surfers, ocean recreationalists and our Save San Onofre Coalition partners to oppose the Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) proposed 5.5-mile extension of the 241 Toll Road.  Surfrider Foundation is asking supporters to attend the meeting to demonstrate opposition to the road.

WHAT:  On Wednesday, June 19th the Regional Water Quality Control Board is expected to make a decision regarding the TCA’s permit to build the first “segment” of the SR-241 toll road extension. The TCA just won’t quit.  They are attempting to move forward with their plan to extend SR-241 – the same road that was rejected by the California Coastal Commission and the Bush Administration in 2008.  Since 2011, the TCA has been proposing to build the road in “segments” – five miles at a time.  “Segmenting” is illegal under state and federal law.  Not only does the TCA’s plan circumvent important laws, it absolutely makes no planning sense.

WHEN:  Wednesday, June 19, 2013
1:00 PM – public comment will be taken shortly after 1:00 PM

WHERE:  Regional Water Quality Control Board Meeting Room
9174 Sky Park Court
San Diego, CA 92123
