Judge rejects San Diego County transit plan

San Diego County governments may have to redraw a nearly $200 billion plan that lays out transportation projects for the next 40 years.

A county judge ruled this week that the plan doesn't meet state environmental laws on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The plan, adopted by the San Diego Association of Governments, calls for meeting transportation needs in the growing county with 130 new highway lanes, 156 miles of trolley service and nearly $4 billion in bike and pedestrian projects.

It was challenged by preservation groups and state Attorney General Kamala Harris.

Colleen Windsor, a spokeswoman for the San Diego Association of Governments, says the group feels the plan does meet state requirements. The group's board will meet Friday to discuss the ruling.
