LA County Is Starting Construction On First New Freeway In Over 25 Years!

posted by Dave styles -

It looks like a new freeway will be built in Los Angeles!

The new 63-mile freeway is projected to reduced some traffic on the 210, 10, and 60 freeways.

The projected has been funded by legislation Measure M, which raised $274 million to build projects like this "High Desert Corridor" over the next 40 years.  

While this project seems like an overwhelmingly good deal, some critics have worried about the environmental impact this new freeway would have.

Parts of the Mojave Desert are within the path of the proposed freeway and its ecosystem will likely be affect by its presence. 

On top of that, air pollution is another troublesome phenomenon for people within these areas. 

California's Department of Transportation plans to set this plan in motion this June with the purchase of the required land. 

With this and the recent approval of the environmental impact report, Southern California residents should plan to see the construction of the "High Desert Corridor" over the next few years.
