Saturday, June 5, 2010

The Fourth Bore Coalition (FBC) filed a lawsuit against Caltrans over its plans to add a fourth bore to the Caldecott Tunnel. In January 2009, the FBC settled its lawsuit under threat by Governor Schwarzenegger. The settlement included $3 million for air quality and noise mitigation for two Rockridge public schools immediately adjacent to Hwy. 24, Claremont Middle School and Chabot Elementary. The FBC is a coalition of local community groups in Oakland and Berkeley centered around Highway 24, including RCPC and FROG.
