The restraining order currently in effect to prevent Caltrans from starting construction on Phase I of the Niles Canyon Widening Project expires this Thursday (June 23, 2011).
At 9:00 a.m. (yes, this is a change from what we posted earlier) thisÂ Thursday, Judge Roesch is expected to rule whether to grant an injunction against further construction until the legal issue of whether an Environmental Impact report must be prepared for the project is resolved.Â PLEASE SHOW UP IF YOU CAN.Â We won’t be able to do any talking; but at least we can show the judge that the community cares about Alameda Creek.
Here’s the address:
Alameda Superior Court, Dept. 31
201 13th Street, 2nd Floor
Please note thatÂ Alameda Superior Court is in the U.S.P.S. Building. Click here for directions, or take BART to the Lake Merritt station — the building is only four blocks away
