Anchorage judge delays decision on Knik Arm crossing

Posted: Sunday, June 28, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A state judge has delayed ruling in a lawsuit filed by two Mat-Su cities that aims to block a decision to push the proposed Knik Arm crossing further back in Anchorage's transportation plan.

The mayors of Houston and Wasilla maintain that the policy committee of the Anchorage Metropolitan Area Transportation Solutions broke federal public notice requirements and its own procedures when it voted on a compromise to delay construction until at least 2018.

The mayors had requested an emergency court order blocking any change for 10 days.

Judge Sen Tan said he would consider that over the weekend.

Tan also scheduled a second hearing for July 15 to hear more arguments on a longer-term injunction.
