In a growing groundswell against a proposed light rail system for Orange County, a majority of Anaheim's City Council members say they will oppose the so-called CenterLine at tonight's council meeting. Citing concerns that the system is too expensive for the amount of congestion relief it will provide, three of the five council members said they believe light rail should not be built anywhere in Orange County.

A week before county transportation officials are slated to choose a final route for the heavily promoted CenterLine project, the key political support they had hoped to attract hasn't materialized, and opposition has grown. That could force officials to abandon a third of a light rail network projected to cost about $2 billion. Orange County Transportation Agency officials have worked feverishly to gain support for the project.

Over the past five years, Orange County voters have cooled to the idea of building a rail system as a transportation alternative and now favor widening or maintaining existing roads and freeways instead, according to a new transit poll. The poll released Monday showed 17.3% of respondents listing a rail system as "most important" to them, down sharply from 42% who felt that way in a 1991 poll. However, 10.7% in the latest poll did favor improving MetroLink service and 8.
