A group of Mill Woods residents are unhappy with the plans for the Valley Line LRT project, and one man is taking these concerns to court.
Chris Christianson said he has filed for a court injunction to stop the work until the issues are dealt with.
“We have big concerns about our foundations, about the noise and about this relocation of this gas main.”
He said one of his concerns is the tracks being laid down on the east side of 66 Street.
“If there’s any way that the line could be shifted to the center where there’s no utilities then all these residents would not be impacted in a negative manner.”
It’s the second time in three months residents have tried to stop construction of the line.
Naresh and Umi Rastogi live in the area and said they feel like their concerns aren’t being heard.
“It’s disgusting, we live in this neighborhood they don’t so we are more impacted than anyone else.”
Christianson said he wants his concerns to be heard by the city.
Valley line communications lead Quinn Nicholson said a meeting between the city and residents may be put on hold.
“We were in the process of scheduling a meeting for Saturday we may now have to put that meeting on hold simply because legal action has been taken.”
Utility work for the project is scheduled to start Monday, but residents said if they don’t get a meeting before then, they won’t let crews on their property.
