Despite the toll road being resoundingly rejected in 2008 by State and Federal agencies, toll road developers are trying to build the road in segments. Last year at a Regional Water board hearing, Surfrider and Coalition partners won a huge victory when the “first segment” was denied.

Toll road developers tried to appeal the decision to the State Water Board. On Sept 23 2014, the State Water Board rejected TCA’s request to weaken California’s water quality protection laws and overturn the regional board decision–thus rejecting TCA’s toll road extension project.
