The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is commissioning a study to assess the technical feasibility of boring a tunnel to connect the Long Beach (710) Freeway to the Foothill (210) Freeway. To the dismay of city leaders, the study, which an MTA official stressed is "preliminary," will not take into account pollution levels that could increase if the tunnel is built and more freeway traffic courses through La Cañada Flintridge as result.

In testimony Friday that was set to continue Monday morning, the driver of the runaway truck that killed two people in La Cañada Flintridge in April 2009 after its brakes went out on Angeles Crest Highway recounted parts of that journey leading up to the fatal crash. Marcos Costa, 46, said through a Portuguese translator that he did his best to follow a route prescribed by a witness who flagged the truck down on Angeles Forest Highway, but due to his poor command of English may not have understood all the man said — including warnings about the steep terrain he would face and evidence that his brakes were overheating.

The city of La Cañada Flintridge will continue to fight plans to extend the Long Beach (710) Freeway, officials said Monday, despite the recent ruling by a Santa Barbara judge to dismiss a lawsuit that sought to bar Measure R funding from being used on the project. La Cañada and the city of South Pasadena filed lawsuits contending that the Metropolitan Transit Authority could not use tax dollars generated by Measure R to extend the 710 Freeway because the necessary environmental assessments have not been conducted.

The temporary ban for trucks on Angeles Crest Highway became permanent Aug. 6 as Assembly Bill 1361 was signed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, officially making it illegal for any commercial vehicle exceeding three axles or 10,000 pounds to travel on the highway. Shortly after the April 1 runaway accident at the Foothill Boulevard terminus of the highway, which killed Angel Posca and his pre-teen daughter Angelina, injured several others and heavily damaged the building that houses Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse, the state placed a temporary ban on all big rigs from traveling on ACH to allow the bill time to work its way through the approval process.
