Hollywood Freeway Park - Proposals Needed

The Hollywood Chamber reports that the CRA initiated an RFP process for a feasibility study of the freeway cap park. The study "will investigate the possibility of building atop the 101 Freeway in Hollywood to construct a "cap" park." Also, the proposed park now has a web site (hollywoodfreewaycentralpark.org) and a logo. That's half the battle right there.

Here's a helpful time line to help us understand when we can begin using our park.
