On Wednesday, June 19th, the Regional Water Quality Control Board will vote on whether or not to allow the Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) to begin constructing the first section of the embattled 241 Toll Road extension. The California Coastal Commission rejected the extension back in 2008, but the TCA is moving forward with its plan to work around that rejection by building the road in segments, which have a smaller environmental impact footprint, and are, therefore, easier to be approved in piecemeal.

If you feel so moved, public comments will be taken starting at 1:00 PM at the Regional Water Quality Control Board Meeting Room, 9174 Sky Park Court, San Diego.

Surfrider Foundation representatives will be on hand to meet with concerned surfers and environmentalists.
