Firm Plan for 710?

LA Times "Bottleneck" writer Jean Guccione checks in with the proposed plans for the 710 Freeway in South Pasadena which some officials believe could reduce traffic by 20 percent. On Wednesday, a MTA committee "tentatively approved putting up more than $5 million as its contribution to a larger Caltrans feasibility study." A previous study showed that the tunnel was totally do-able, but Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina, head of the county MTA, worries about, uhm, resistance to the plan: "I don’t want to spend $13 million if we are going to get politically impotent at the end of the day."
