    By Olivia Wynkoop | Bay City News Foundation A stretch of Highway 236 — the main roadway through the Big Basin Redwoods State Park — reopened to drivers on Friday after state park officials made forward progress in restoring the forest after the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex Fire. The road closure from Little Basin Road, 6.4 miles north of the South junction of State Route 9, to China Grade, 4.8 miles south of the North junction of State Route 9, has now been lifted. Drivers can roll through Big Basin without stopping, or park with a reservation. The park is opened on a limited day-use-only reservation system as the forest continues to recover from the effects of the fire two years ago. Park officials say that 18,000 acres of park property were burned, including the park headquarters, campgrounds and housing for park employees.

    SANTA CRUZ – The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission and California Transportation Commission (Caltrans) will pause plans for a High Occupancy Vehicle lane after a recent court ruling ordered Caltrans to revise a report completed more than three years ago. The challenge came from the Campaign for Sustainable Transportation and the Sierra Club and was in response to the Highway 1 Tier I/Tier II Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Assessment that was prepared collaboratively between the two transportation commissions and certified in 2019. The Tier I level for highway corridor projects are classified on the Santa Cruz transportation commission’s website as “planning-level” while Tier II efforts are “project-level.” In essence, Tier I planning for the highway corridor is built over time through a series of incremental Tier II projects. The ruling, which came from the Superior Court of California, was in favor of a challenge to a Tier I conceptual planning analysis for High Occupancy Vehicle lanes along the Highway 1 corridor. Challenges against Tier II projects including an expansion of auxiliary lanes and creation of a bicycle and pedestrian over-crossing...

    Two women were arrested by Norwegian police after being accused of driving an anti-Islam activist off the road following a Qur’an burning in Oslo over the weekend. Two women are accused of a hit-and-run against the vehicle of Lars Thorsen, the leader of the hardline anti-Islam Stop Islamisation of Norway (SIAN) group, on Saturday following a demonstration that saw a copy of the Islamic Qur’an set on fire. Anti-Islam protesters allege that Muslims can be violent and quick to anger, and that the reactions to their Qur’an protests simply prove this. Others claim the protests are deeply provocative and hateful. Whoever is right, the protests are often followed by acts of extreme violence.

    Long-term plans to improve a severely congested and often dangerous Loudoun County highway took a step forward Tuesday, but it’ll still be a while before commuters see improvements. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has amended its 2019 Countywide Transportation Plan to widen U.S. Route 15 from two to four lanes, from near Lucketts to Leesburg in Northern Virginia. A highway bypass will be built west of Route 15, with a final alignment to be determined as part of the design process. But changes won’t help commuters today, tomorrow or anytime soon: If all proceeds as planned, the project is slated for completion in 2040 — nearly two decades from now. By October of this year, the county board will come up with a list of safety and operational improvements that can be completed within a shorter time frame of seven years. More Loudoun County News Some opponents of the plan criticize its projected cost, but supporters say its long-term timetable will make the county eligible for new funding sources.
