Good news for those who love the idea of the Klingle Trail.
The FHWA has determined that the Preferred Alternative and options will not have a significant impact on the natural, human or built environment and has issued a FONSI for the Klingle Valley Trail project.
As Lydia DePillis explains
The issuance of FONSI means that the proposal... won't have to go through a lengthy environmental impact statement process.
Next on the agenda
Lock down funding in the city's fiscal year 2012 budget to actually engineer the thing. And then get the money needed to construct it, which will be a mix of federal and local dollars. And then, most likely, get the City Council to perform a formal street closing. Bottom line: Nothing happens before 2013.
