An environmental group has failed to convince a federal judge that he ought to block construction of the "smart highway."
In a 22-page written opinion, Judge Jackson Kiser rejected each of the New River Valley Greens' concerns.
Among them: the exact location of the highway and damage to a plant called the smooth coneflower.
Though Judge Kiser said highway planners "certainly could have been more thorough in their analysis of the project's environmental impact," the judge said: the 'Greens' "have failed to demonstrate the environmental impact statement was arbitrary or capricious."
