Los Gatos joins lawsuit over proposed Highway 85 expansion


    May 22, 2015--Los Gatos has become the third plaintiff in the lawsuit filed by Saratoga and Cupertino against Caltrans and VTA over the proposed expansion of Highway 85.  
    Citing fears of more traffic and noise, the Los Gatos Town Council has voted to join their two neighboring cities in the suit.
    The council also wanted to consider more options, saying the state has failed to comply with the California Environmental Quality Act.
    Caltrans says the project would have no significant impact and has cleared the way for VTA's board to schedule a June vote on the proposed widening.
    The $176 million project would convert about 27 miles of existing carpool lanes to toll lanes from the Highway 101 interchange in South San Jose to the 101 interchange in Mountain View.  Full Story
