The Fourth Bore Coalition is working on behalf of East Bay residents to ensure Caltrans does “the right thing(s)” as they add a fourth bore for the Caldecott Tunnel.
Formed in 2005 by concerned local community groups in Oakland and Berkeley centered around Highway 24, the Coalition sued Caltrans over its approval of the Fourth Bore Project last December. The Coalition believes environmental documents failed to identify and mitigate the effects on residents of the proposed bore, and filed a lawsuit to get them redone. The lawsuit settled in Spring 2009.
The Coalition is currently working with the Cities of Oakland and Berkeley, as well as Caltrans, to ensure the settlement provisions are followed and construction impacts minimized.
