Jamul residents protest casino

Hundreds of Jamul residents gathered Wednesday night to oppose construction of a casino, partly over fears it will create dangerous traffic conditions.

Three lawsuits have already been filed to block the Jamul Indian Village Casino, a $360 million, three-story, 200,000-square-foot gambling center to be located along state Route 94.

The casino is projected to draw more than 9,000 vehicles down the two-lane highway, which residents say will be unsafe and will also slow their own access to the area.

Construction has already begun on the casino, but the San Diego County Board of Supervisors has sued Caltrans on charges that it issued a faulty traffic management plan.
