LTD Responds To Project Appeal

EUGENE, Ore. — The Lane Transit District is responding to the appeal of the West Eugene Em-X Extension.

The group Our Money Our Transit filed the motion in federal court.

The group’s hoping to have the environmental impact of the proposal thrown out.

LTD says it has zero doubt a federal judge will keep the project rolling forward.

“At this point, we don’t see an injunction being issued and we are going to proceed with our engineering until we’re told otherwise,” said LTD spokesperson Andy Vobora.

“There shouldn’t be anybody along this extension route that should even bother with negotiating with, to give LTD any of their property at this point. We really believe that we’re probably going to stop this extension,” said OMOT Spokesperson, Bob Macherione.

Construction for the extension is expected to begin in 2015.

    The anti-transit extremists have lost. The EmX project is going to happen. Now remove the thousands of signs that are littering West 11th Ave. They’re a major eye-sore!
