Coalition Prompts Big Step Forward Against I-710 Expansion

An overflowing room of concerned residents during a public hearing convinced a Caltrans advisory committee to vote unanimously to consider a more sustainable community plan (Community Alternative 7) for the I-710 expansion.  For years various public agencies have sought to expand the I-710 freeway, which will bring more traffic and air pollution to Southeast LA.  We’re one step closer toward realizing the communities’ vision of a healthier I-710 corridor.  This victory was made possible by the Coalition for Environmental Health and Justice (CEHAJ), which includes CBE.
