L.A. Freeway Cap Park Edges Towards Feasibility
"The freeway conversion, backed by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Los Angeles redevelopment officials and local politicians, would turn the top of the freeway into a 44-acre "locals-first community park." It would serve what advocates say is one of the city's most parks-poor areas."
"'It will be built,' advocate Don Scott promised Hollywood residents as the 92-page report detailing its preliminary design concept was released Wednesday night."
"A parade of local lawmakers declared their support for what backers call "Hollywood Freeway Central Park," which would be funded with a combination of state, local, federal and private dollars."
