(Thu., Nov. 1, 2012) − HART executive director and CEO Daniel Grabauskas issued the following statement regarding today’s federal court ruling:


“We are pleased to see that the judge ruled in favor of the City on 20 of the 23 remaining issues, and flatly rejected the vast majority of the plaintiff’s claims. The project remains on course.


“On all the major issues, we have successfully shown that the project properly conducted the required analyses and environmental studies. The ruling underscores the fact that the majority of alternatives were given proper consideration, including bus rapid transit (BRT), at-grade light rail and managed lanes. We will be carefully examining the ruling to determine what further course of action is needed.”
