SAN DIEGO (AP) — Environmentalists filed a lawsuit Wednesday seeking to block the extension of atoll road in southern Orange County, five years after widespread public opposition stopped a similar project.
The lawsuit filed in San Diego County Superior Court argues that plans for a 5.5-mile extension to the south State Route 241 toll road don’t meet basic environmental requirements.
Widespread opposition in 2008 killed a proposed 16-mile toll road extension linking south Orange County and northern San Diego County.
The California Coastal Commission rejected that project, which would have bisected San Onofre State Beach.
