Encinitas, CA: Highway 101 Development Project Hits Second Roadblock

The City of Encinitas just hit a second roadblock on a controversial development project along Highway 101.

Upset neighbors first sued the city, and now they’ve filed suit against the Coastal Commission for approving the plan that calls for thinning a stretch of the highway from four to two lanes in favor of a bike lane, additional parking, a series of roundabouts and crosswalks.

“I can’t believe it,” Escondido resident Bill Sparks said. “That doesn’t make any sense to me.”
