Your highway comment letter needed as deadline nearsSeptember 17th, 2012 by Morgan, Policy Coordinator
Please take a moment to send a letter to the California Department of Transportation today—now is the time to make your voice heard for a safe, ecologically-sound project!
The Lee Vining Rockfall Safety Project has the potential to solve old eroding roadcuts next to Mono Lake but only if Caltrans combines permanent slope stabilization with aggressive and guaranteed revegetation measures. Otherwise, a unmitigated version of the project will remove existing trees and shrubs, creating more erosion and permanent visual scars on the landscape.
There public comment deadline is September 24 and now is the time to make your voice heard on behalf of Mono Lake. To learn more about the Caltrans Rockfall Project, please visit our action center and send a letter today asking Caltrans to do the right thing for Mono Lake.
