JAMUL CASINO: MAJOR UPDATE
CalTrans APPROVED the casino’s Traffic Management Plan (TMP) and Encroachment Permit to allow excavation work at the Jamul Indian village to begin.
The County of SD voted to sue CalTrans: SD County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to direct County Counsel to move forward in suing CalTrans for issuing this illegal TMP and permit.
The JAC will also sue CalTrans: Jamul Action Committee/Jamulians against the Casino voted to file its lawsuit vs. CalTrans. Steve Volker will be lead counsel.
This battle will be won in the courts. CalTrans has violated its own procedures and state law.
The tribe and their backers (Penn Nat’l) are angry—they will issue a press release today (Friday). They vow to begin work immediately. Get ready.
Should this work begin, JAC needs your description and photos of trucks, traffic, and safety issues. Send them to:

The TMP says loaded trucks (fill and blasted granite) will head east on 94, turn right onOtay Lakes Rd, and return via the same route. No consideration was given to the extreme danger of slow, large vehicles turning left across traffic at Otay Lakes and 94.
30 trucks/hour – 330 trucks/day
(and we thought the repaving work was bad…)
