Daniel Wilson inspects a Bing cherry tree in an orchard in the delta on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. The state's proposal to build two giant water diversion tunnels under the Delta also involves major highway modifications. Documents obtained by The Bee reveal that the project would reroute Highway 160, over at least three miles, around the three huge water intakes for a period of years. Locals say this would destroy one of the most scenic routes in Sacramento County and potentially harm commerce in the region.
