On a 4-1 vote, city commissioners agreed to send a letter to the Federal Highway Administration supporting a 32nd Street route for the South Lawrence Trafficway.
The letter reserved the position of the previous City Commission that had opposed running the uncompleted road project through the Baker Wetlands.
Commissioner Boog Highberger was the lone commissioner to vote against sending the letter. He said wetlands route was too damaging to the environment.
Other commissioners said they supported the route as the most feasible way to complete the needed road project.
Commissioners decided to send the letter, which was talked about last month, even though the Federal Highway Administration already has issued a key report supporting the 32nd Street alignment.
