US Appeals Panel To Hear Lawrence Trafficway Case

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A federal appeals panel is scheduled to hear arguments in a lawsuit over the planned completion of the South Lawrence Trafficway.

The uncompleted trafficway is the subject of a federal lawsuit. The state has won a ruling finding that the project has the necessary permits to build the road through the Baker Wetlands.

But opponents have filed an appeal with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals arguing the permit process was flawed and the road should not be allowed in the wetlands.

The Lawrence Journal World reports that the appeals panel in Denver will hear oral arguments in the case Jan. 19.
