OC Toll Road officials to appeal denial of extension of Foothill South tollawy

The LA Times reports:

A day after their stinging defeat before the California Coastal Commission, Orange County toll road officials announced they will appeal the decision. After 12 hours of public testimony and debate Wednesday, commissioners decided by an 8-2 vote that extending the Foothill South tollway through San Onofre State Beach would violate environmental laws designed to regulate development along 1,100 miles of California coastline.

Officials with the Transportation Corridor Agencies, which has spent years and tens of millions of dollars planning the Foothill South, say they are also considering a new route for the six-lane highway.
