Eagleridge Bluffs Protest in Court

Today the Eagleridge Bluffs Protest had its first day in court. About 150 people showed up to rally and many of them stayed for the start of the hearing.

A few people offered support for the my sign which read, “Trains Not Lanes” and expressed their frustration with the tunnel option that the coalition seems to be emphasizing.

The hearing had to be moved to a different court room due to the size of the crowd. When I left the lawyer for the concerned citizens was making the case that the construction contractors had broken their contract by not filing an Environmental Management Plan for the entire section that they were working on.
