I got the message from your
secretary. Please confirm that this means there was no subcommittee
meeting with Caltrans at the last Commission meeting.
Given Caltran's agreement to move
forward rapidly on alternative rails and to let the Commission choose the
new rail for the Noyo, it is critically important to get Caltrans to
agree to accept an unmodified Wyoming Rail or to provide the Commission
with detailed justification for its modifications. There are multiple
levels of rebuttal to their contention that the Wyoming Rail needs to be
modified as they done, and I will be glad to provide the Commission with
the information if its necessary.
First, though, I request that you
follow up on Peter Douglas's letter of August 3, 2000 to Sleeter Dover of
the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Perhaps a call would be
appropriate at this point.
Also, if Mr. Allison, Caltrans Acting
Deputy Director of Engineering Services, has not responded to your letter
of August 14, 2000, please call to check on the status of his response.
Answers to the questions posed in that letter bear directly on the
Commission's ability to ensure that Caltrans provides it with the best
available railing alternatives.
I also remind you that you were going
to write to Caltrans to correct question 3 in your letter to Mr. Allison
if Caltrans did not respond to the letter at the last Commission meeting.
Caltrans did not respond.
I copied Chris Desser on this e-mail,
but I do not have an e-mail address for Shirley Dettloff. Would you
please forward the contents of this message to her, either by e-mail or
Thank you for your continuing help. I
believe that the ultimate results, in terms of vastly better views from
bridges throughout the state, inland as well as on the coast, will fully
justify the effort that this is taking.
P.S:. Is e-mail adequate for building
the record, or should I send you a paper copy of this message.
