Ire mounts on reversible lane project

first_imgLos Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl, whose district includes Brentwood, has held a series of meetings with homeowners near the proposed freeway construction, including Church Lane residents, and does not want Caltrans to use eminent domain to take any houses in his area for the expansion. “I am very protective of my community and my folks,” said Rosendahl. “I have taken a very strong position that I do not want to see any of the homes confiscated.” City Councilman Jack Weiss, whose district includes parts of West Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, said there are two goals to keep in mind with the upcoming projects: to improve traffic through the Sepulveda Pass and not to disrupt existing communities. “My hope is that by getting all the issues on the table, we can find a way to do both,” said Weiss.

A community meeting to be held on Thursday will focus on concerns about the Sepulveda Boulevard project, as well as the $950 million plan to build a car-pool lane along the northbound 405 Freeway from the 10 to the 101 freeways. After receiving $730 million in bond money this year, the California Department of Transportation held two public hearings in March so residents could comment on four proposals for expanding the 405 Freeway to accommodate a car-pool lane. The most controversial proposal involves razing a Lutheran church and dozens of homes on Church Lane in Brentwood. The Caltrans decision on its preferred route is imminent, agency spokeswoman Judy Gish said. Once the proposal is released, Caltrans will release it to the public to review for two months and then will hold another public hearing. The 405 Freeway expansion is expected to be completed by 2012. As the city finalizes its plans to build a reversible lane on Sepulveda Boulevard to help ease rush-hour jams, some residents remain fiercely opposed to the project, fearing the thoroughfare will become a mini-freeway. The reversible lane would be part of an $11.3 million project including widening the boulevard along a six-mile stretch between Mulholland Drive and Wilshire Boulevard. If the City Council approves the project, groundbreaking would be in June 2008 on the effort to reduce congestion on the San Diego Freeway, which carries an estimated 30,000 motorists daily between the San Fernando Valley and the rest of L.A. The plan calls for dedicating the middle of three lanes through the tunnel to southbound traffic in the morning and to northbound traffic in the evening. While engineers consider reversible lanes a quick fix to traffic congestion, residents worry about the impact on local neighborhoods. “Transportation/traffic would be a nightmare for not only those that are landlocked, Skirball, Mountaingate and Bel Air Crest … but the (30,000) to 40,000 cars that use Sepulveda to and from the Valley,” says a letter to city officials from homeowner Patricia Bell Hearst, who is spearheading opposition to the project. last_img read more
