BOSTON (AP) — Wynn Resorts is pushing back after Massachusetts’ Attorney General called for state environmental officials to deny the company a crucial environmental permit for its $1.7 billion casino project.

Company spokesman Michael Weaver said Friday the state’s traffic and environmental review process requires Wynn to address the traffic impacts brought by its project, “not solve decades-long traffic issues which pre-date our project.”

He said after two-and-a-half years and millions of dollars and thousands of pages of traffic analysis, the company is ready to move forward with a plan to make $10.9 million in traffic improvements to Boston’s congested Sullivan Square.

Healey, in a nearly 70-page letter issued Friday, said Wynn should not be issued a state permit until a long-term plan is in place to address area traffic.
