Judge lifts Doyle Drive injunction 

An agreement for a private developer to fund and build a major portion of the Doyle Drive rebuild can move forward, following a judge’s ruling Monday to lift a temporary injunction against the plan.

Last month, Professional Engineers in California Government, a public workers group, successfully sought a temporary injunction against the $1 billion rebuild of Doyle Drive, the aging southern approach to the Golden Gate Bridge. The PECG filed a suit against the project for several reasons, most notably that the contract did not go out to bid for public workers.

On Monday morning, Judge Wynne Carvill of the Alameda County Superior Court issued a 23-page ruling, dissolving the temporary injunction against the project and clearing the way for the private consortium, called Golden Link Partners, to move forward with the second phase of the project, which is set to begin later this year.

While Carvill ruled in favor of the private consortium, he did schedule a trial date for Jan. 21, at which time representatives from the PECG can argue for a permanent injunction against the plan.
