Sen. Barbara Boxer and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Thursday used the 6th Street Viaduct over the Los Angeles River as the backdrop to call for more federal spending on California infrastructure. Concrete in the 1933 bridge connecting Downtown with the Eastside is rotting from the inside and the structure is slated for replacement.
