The Viaduct is not dead. Or at least not as of yet. A law suite has been filed by Elizabeth Campbell according to her supporters. This is in the process of being verified. However, I had knowledge that this was going to happen two months ago. The only delay was in the acquisition of funds for the lawsuite. Stay tuned as to exactly what the specific details are. Will be getting this information from Elizabeth Campbell as soon as I am able to contact her.
The stigma of the lawsuite should be that an environmental impact statement has not been filed for the Tunnel as of yet. The Tunnel project has been separated into many different parts so that the necessity for a large Environmental Impact Statement is lessened. This might be strategic on the construction of the Tunnel but it violates the spirit of the law. A correction in this endeavor needs to be upheld and thus stop the progress of the building of the Tunnel until a correct and complete Environmental Impact Statement can be completed and evaluated by Federal Authorities and others who would need to make evaluations.
But is this the part of the lawsuite which is being filed. Stay tuned for complete details on this obvious controversy.
SR 520 construction may be dependent upon these determinations and findings. Financing of both are tight and could be flipped at any time. Who is responsible for what and when still needs to be answered. Again, the costliest roads are being played with. Your money is at stake again.
Either through politics or legal maneuvering.
