Calif. May Build Tunnel in Quake Region
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (AP) - Traffic is so bad along the eastern rim of Los Angeles' suburban ring that regional planners are considering the once unthinkable - an 11-mile tunnel through a mountain range in earthquake country.
The tunnel would begin barely a mile from a fault that produced a 6.0-magnitude earthquake about a century ago. ...
Planners are due to make a decision in mid November on whether to pursue the project.
The proposal for what would be the world's second-longest road tunnel would create a new path between sprawling inland suburbs and Orange County, which has become one of Southern California's fastest-growing job centers.
Such a project could cost up to $9 billion and take 25 years.
Transportation officials insist something drastic must be done to deal with the crippling traffic congestion between Orange and Riverside counties, which are separated by the 25-mile-long Santa Ana Mountains. Nearly 400,000 people commute into Orange County daily from four surrounding counties and nearly all of them drive.
What kind of idiot lives in an earthquake zone.? Really, what moron put a city there? I'll tell you how to solve the traffic problem. All of those people -the whole city- should just move. Move the people out, bulldoze the buildings and make it a big national park.
We should not be spending 1 federal dollar to build a road when WE KNOW an earthquake will destroy it. These people are just stupid.
