Tonight's KCRW column, airing at 6:44 p.m. talks about the massive I-405 freeway makeover and the plans to close the freeway for a weekend in July. Snippet:
Regular commuters have been watching the lanes shrink and the freeway shoulders vanish with a mix of dread -- and fascination,
They – and I’m one of them – are intrigued on the one hand by the appearance of new concrete structures that don’t go anywhere. And the sight of new retaining walls in the canyons of Sepulveda Pass.
But we also worry that the whole mess is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
That’s what’s going to happen on that Friday night in July.
