CalTrans to devaste Niles Canyon - protest this Sat.

Original post made by Nancy, Foothill High School, on Mar 3, 2011

For those who may not know, CalTrans has already begun removing trees in Niles Canyon as part of a massive, three-phase project to straighten out the canyon. If all goes as planned, there will be sound walls, gross harm to the fish, wildlife and beauty of the canyon, and interruption - and maybe outright sessation - of Niles Canyon Railway train travel.

Niles Canyon is a safer-than-most State highway; CalTrans' plans equal gross government waste. There will be a big protest this Saturday at the Fremont end of Niles Canyon starting at 5pm.
