Downtown L.A. Freeway Cap Moves Foward

The proposed "Park 101" freeway cap in Downtown Los Angeles could change the face of the city. But it faces huge obstacles.

At a panel discussion in downtown Los Angeles last week, Park 101's supporters kicked around a wide variety of ideas on moving the project forward, including building it in bite-sized pieces, working the project into downtown L.A.'s transfer of development rights program, and piggy-backing on L.A. Metro's master-planning process for Union Station. One thing is for sure: If Park 101 can get done, it will open the floodgates for freeway caps throughout Southern California, especially on Highway 101.
