    A federal agency has rejected an appeal to build a toll road through a popular state park along Southern California's coastline.

    SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.  -- A federal agency has rejected an appeal to build a toll road through a popular state park along Southern California's coastline.

    The U.S. Department of Commerce on Thursday rejected the appeal because there is at least one reasonable alternate route for the road. The decision upholds a ruling by the California Coastal Commission that objected to the 16-mile road after opponents argued it would harm endangered species and block sediment flows that create a world-class surf break at a spot known as Trestles.

    The Transportation Corridor Agencies, which proposes to build the road in Orange and San Diego counties, appealed the decision to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a branch of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
