Key Hurdle to Wetlands Restoration Removed

November 07, 2001|From Times staff and wire reports

In a surprise move, the California Department of Transportation removed the main obstacle Tuesday to the $100-million restoration of the Bolsa Chica wetlands, paving the way for the project's approval.

Caltrans' previous insistence on turning a four-lane section of Pacific Coast Highway into a six-lane bridge was the primary reason the state Coastal Commission staff had recommended against the project Friday. But Tuesday, the transportation agency agreed to a four-lane bridge. The commission is now expected to approve the project Tuesday in Los Angeles.
