In a blow to opponents of Metro Rail subway construction, the Los Angeles city parks department has tentatively decided to end its resistance to tunneling under Runyon Canyon Park in the Hollywood Hills and sell an underground easement to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The MTA will pay $150,000 for the subterranean pathway--about $5 million less than the price the parks department had called "nonnegotiable" only a month ago, but far more than the $1,000 originally offered.
