Both sides disappointed at canceled tollway hearing
Nossaman Partner Rob Thornton is quoted in the OC Register article, "Both sides disappointed at canceled tollway hearing." A hearing on the proposed Foothill South toll road was canceled because authorities feared the expected crowd of almost 10,000 would be too much for the Bren Center, which has a capacity of less than 5,000. Mr. Thornton represents the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency of Irvine, which is proposing to build the project. The article discusses his, along with the tollway opponents', disappointment over the canceled hearing, which may or may not be rescheduled. Mr. Thornton is quoted as saying, "It's unfortunate. I thought we had a good location."
