Chunk of Change to Unclog Traffic

New, 20 comments

The LA Times Now blog is reporting our city is getting $210 million in federal money to unclog our terrible freeway congestion and improve bus service. "U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters said in a statement that it is the largest grant to ease congestion the department has awarded to any city to date." According to LA Now, the project will involve the conversion of 28 miles of carpool lanes on the 10 Freeway from Alameda Street to the 605 Freeway, as well as 33 miles of lanes on the Harbor Freeway from 182nd Street/Artesia Transit Center to Adams Boulevard.
