From the Daily News:

"This is why it is so important because we have this bumper-to-bumper traffic to go and build an extra lane and build out the 405 freeway," Schwarzenegger said at a news conference at a Caltrans construction yard along Mulholland Drive. "And hopefully, eventually, we will build on top of the 405 Freeway because I think we need another freeway on top of the existing one."

Streetsblog reacts: "As you would expect, both the Daily News and KTLA, who's story is above, are silent on the amazing environmental damage the construction and usage of an extra four lanes of 405 would bring to the area and the state."

"And naturally, there's no mention of the Governor's plan to bankrupt transit agencies throughout the state at the same time he's proposing ANOTHER massive freeway project for an area already choking in its own traffic."
