It’ll Be a Long Time Before Any of These Ideas Come to Pass

Sepulveda Pass Tunnel: 1935

An earlier post (Dec. 27) on this blog noted that the MTA has various long-range plans for dealing with the traffic bottleneck through the Sepulveda Pass, just north and slightly west of UCLA.  Readers will not have to be reminded of the fact that the current project of widening the 405 and replacing bridges has been the source of major traffic headaches.

The LA Daily News carries an updated story about the MTA’s plans which range from modest to a very expensive tunnel which would carry both rail and cars. 

You can read about these plans at the link below.  None of them are likely to come to fruition any time soon:
