"Until the court answers our response to the proposed order," said Don Amador, "the named routes are still closed by the seasonal closure. We expect their answer shortly."

"As you can see from these pleadings," Amador continued, "the aforementioned intervenors are the last line of defense against the immediate closure of the routes in question."
