Highway J (164) Decision: Link To Full Text

As promised, here is a link to the case file including US District Court Judge Lynn Adelman's Monday decision on allegations made by two Waukesha-area organizations that federal and state agencies violated various laws and procedures in approving the widening of State Highway 164.

Adelman found serious flaws in documentation, studies and hearings the agencies used to approve the 18-mile road-widening, wetlands-filling project - - portions of which have been completed.

It will be fascinating to see what remedies are ordered, or if and when appeals will be filed.

But this much is clear: any state or federal agency that embarks on a project with a similar mentality will find itself in court, and facing fines, mandatory remedial action, and other costly consequences.
