Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From wikipedia:

The Via Baltica attracted great controversy in February 2007, as its planned route is to take it through several areas in Poland of great natural value. Most controversial is the Augustow bypass, which would take the route through the wetlands of the Rospuda Valley, the last area of its kind remaining in Europe, and an area protected by EU law as part of the European Natura 2000 Network.

So I guess the mayor wants the traffic out of Augustow, into the wetlands.
