Local News in Brief : Tustin : Homeowner Group Sues Corridor Agency

A Tustin homeowner group filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to force the builders of the proposed Eastern Transportation Corridor to conduct another environmental impact study before beginning construction of the highway project.

The Eastern/Foothill Transportation Corridor Agency, a consortium of 10 cities formed to build the thoroughfare, has proposed the project linking the Riverside and Santa Ana freeways as a means of relieving traffic in the north county.

The Tustin Hills Homeowners Coalition claims that the environmental impact report approved by the Board of Supervisors in June was inadequate because it did not stipulate the impact of traffic from the proposed roadway and does not illustrate how the project fits into the countywide transportation plan.

The suit also names the Board of Supervisors and Orange County.
