Metro & Caltrans

Caltrans released the SR 710 North Study Draft EIR-EIS on March 6, 2015. The public has 120 days to read the 26, 625 pages and comment. See our new DEIR-Info page to learn more.

Caltrans released the SR710 Alternatives Analysis Report in
January 2013, just five days prior to the public open house meetings. 
See maps, descriptions and analyses on the five alternatives being studied.

SR710 Alternatives Analysis Report

The environmental process should include genuine community involvement, rigorous technical analysis and full transparency by the agencies. One public participation component of the SR-710 study, the Community Liaison Councils (CLCs), did not allow a two-way exchange of opinions and ideas, as promised. This infuriated the communities, especially those most affected by the project who were expecting to be more involved. The role of the CLCs collapsed and meetings of the CLCs were suspended after just a few months. The No 710 Action Committee expressed complete dissatisfaction in the overall public outreach efforts in this Dissatisfaction Statement (PDF) 7/20/2013

Stakeholders, comprised of city officials and transportation leaders, were invited to participate in two other outreach committees. The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and Stakeholders Outreach Advisory Committee (SOAC) met quarterly. The slides presented by Metro at the meetings showed study elements and design modifications that followed the release of the Alternatives Analysis. The single bore tunnel option was introduced during one of these meetings and did not go through the same level of scrutiny as the other alternatives.
