PUC to Review Order Allowing Rail Line Work

November 29, 2001

The state Public Utilities Commission will review an order that has allowed construction of the Pasadena Blue Line to continue despite a dispute over street crossings.

Earlier this month, agency board member Richard Bilas gave the builders of the line the right to begin laying track on streets and intersections along the 13.7-mile rail line.

However, the PUC is not scheduled to complete a review of the crossings' safety until May.

The PUC's lawyers now say Bilas overstepped his authority and that the full board must approve construction at street level. The PUC could hear the issue today.
