Why don't they actually show the map of the highway? Toll roads are bullshit!!! The Government needs to step up and fix this problem the right way!!!

Roger Kube says:

Thank you Amanda for bringing awareness to this decision! The TCA's lack of transparency and public process is shameful. The TCA recently applied for an environmental permit with the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) for the first section of the road. Their decision is forthcoming, as early as Wednesday, June 12th. Once we confirm this we'll get the word out and we'll need everyone's help. Like you said, we need to unite and protect our beaches. We will want to show up at that meeting in LARGE numbers to make sure that we shut this down. In the meantime, let's all send email to the TCA ( and a message to the RWQCB urging them to deny TCA’s application (see link below). – Roger Kube, Chair, Surfrider Foundation, San Diego County Chapter.
