The Southern California Rapid Transit District board gave preliminary approval Thursday to the outline of a possible peace treaty with its longstanding rival, the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission. The plan, which will have to overcome considerable opposition within both agencies to win final approval, calls for a new supercommittee of the two transit boards to be empowered to resolve a series of running disputes.

A group of merchants has submitted a written proposal that 80% of the money--$1.6 million--be used for direct payments to the merchants to offset costs of staying in business during the construction project.

The cost overruns were brought about by everything from a 1.6-million-pound underestimate in the amount of steel required for a subway station to $700,000 in unanticipated costs for a rock art project at another station.
