An appeal could be in the works over the construction of the Meadow Creek Parkway. That is after a federal judge denied a request to stop the interchange project connected to the parkway.
In an opinion released Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Norman Moon said the Federal Highway Administration could begin construction on the interchange connecting the parkway with the 250 bypass at McIntire Road.
The Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park argued the federal government sidestepped its responsibility to perform a proper environmental impact study. The judge disagreed, but the coalition says the fight is not over.
Peter Kleeman of the Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park said, "I know there's some strong sentiments among members of the public who believe that this is an action that should be stopped in whatever way, form possible."
Construction on the $27 million interchange is scheduled to start this summer.
