2 San Clemente lawsuits challenge efforts to extend 241 Toll Road – Orange County Register

SAN CLEMENTE — The city of San Clemente and a homeowners’ association are suing to try to keep an extension of the 241 Toll Road from slicing through established communities in South Orange County.

Lawsuits filed Friday, July 28, assert that the Transportation Corridor Agency entered into a November lawsuit settlement that made land-use decisions without proper environmental review or opportunity for public comment.

In what was described as a protective agreement, the TCA agreed to never fund or build a toll road within a defined area south of San Clemente near Trestles Beach.

In return, environmental groups that had sued the TCA  during a “Save Trestles” battle over a long-planned route to connect the 241 to I-5 at Basilone Road agreed not to oppose any alternative route outside of the avoidance area.
