  • SAn Onofre State Beach Threatened By Toll Road

    This is to all those who enjoy using San Onofre nude beach. There is a project under consideration to build a toll road through what is now the state beach. Here is some more info on the subject.

    San Onofre Friends,
    Here's some information on a meeting the State Parks Department is
    holding on Nov 3rd regarding the toll road extension. The Parks Dept.
    is opposed to the toll road. Since they have been supportive of us in
    resent times, we should show our support by attending this meeting.
    Please participate and let people know you're from Friends of San
    Onofre Beach.
    Thanks,
    Allen Baylis
    President, Friends of San Onofre Beach.

    A tollroad highway threatens the great Trestles surf breaks in Southern
    California


    If Surfers Do Not Save Trestles, Who Will? Please Attend the CA Parks
    Commission Meeting on Nov. 3

    The water quality, sandbar sedimentation, and glorious sense of place of
    Trestles are threatened by an ill-planned toll road highway that would
    parallel (not just cross) the largely pristine San Mateo Creek that
    empties into the great Trestles breaks. It's very important to keep
    the proposed toll road highway out of San Onofre State Beach and away
    from the San Mateo Creek. On Thursday, Nov. 3 at 7 pm at the San
    Clemente Community Center Auditorium, 100 North Calle Seville (corner
    of Seville and Del Mar) in San Clemente will take place a special
    hearing by the State Parks Commission about the proposed
    Foothill-South Toll Road's effect on the San Mateo Campground and San
    Onofre State Beach. Your presence at this hearing will let the
    commission and the governor know that we won't let our great surf at
    Trestles pay the toll! For more info on the Nov. 3 parks meeting,
    contact Ed Schlegel at 949-493-5642 or Brittany McKee at 949-361-7534.
    For more info on saving Trestles from the tollroad, see Surfrider's
    Save Trestles web section. Also, a hearty "THANK YOU" to all of you
    who came out and participated in the Trestles Protest Paddle Out on
    Oct. 29.

      NudeAl,

      We have prior commitment but it is possible to change it. We will do our very best to be there for this meeting.

      Thanks for letting us know.

        Nude Al,
        Trestles pay the toll!

        I am not clear as to who wants this toll road and just why they think it necessary? Is this a land control issue or an attempt to make extra money for the CA state coffers? Sawdust

          First.......don't shoot me cuz I'm only speculating here but....

          this Toll Road is just part of the on going infrastructure plan for So. Cal. Currently, the 241 Toll Rd. ends at Oso Parkway in the city of Santa Margarita. All toll road traffic gets off here and undoubtedly causes some traffic/gridlock problems for this area as many head southwest to the 5 freeway and continue their commute. The extension would connect to the 5 freeway and eliminate the need to traverse a city arterial street to connect both freeways.

          I'm not sure what the financial aspects are with these toll roads. We use them frequently when we head into Orange County but there aren't many vehicles on them. I don't see that our few dollars daily/weekly is going to pay for these roads anytime soon.

          This toll road would cut many minutes of travel time for us to San Onofre Beach but I'm not willing to support something, like this toll road, if it means losing or damaging Trestles and I don't even surf!

          So, if at all possible, we will try and make this meeting.
