The City of Los Angeles has extended the public comment period on the current proposal to restore and retrofit the Hyperion Viaduct until November 7th, so please let your voice be heard.

The current project proposal, which took years to develop with significant community input, includes various vehicular, pedestrian and cyclist safety features. Some of those safety features the realignment of the Interstate 5 freeway off-ramp at Glendale Blvd and a pedestrian / bike bridge over the Los Angeles River on the old Red Car pylons. In addition, the project will restore all historical elements of the bridge and retrofit it to weather large earthquakes.
