KCAL9 / CBS2 Covers Faster 405 Campaign

David Murphy

KCAL9 / CBS2 covered the Faster 405 Campaign tonight in a segment from Westwood featuring an interview with our President, David Murphy.

We’re glad KCAL9 / CBS2 covered the impact of delays, and we’d just add a little more that didn’t make the cut in the final segment: we have good things to say about Metro as an agency; it had to deal with some tough third party factors, from a wall collapse to issues with utility companies relocating their lines. And while Metro didn’t identify it to us as a cause of current delays per se, we would point out that state budget problems initially sidelined the project years ago—otherwise it might all be done by now. (The video seemed to suggest Metro gave that reason, but that’s us, and it’s noted in the project EIR.) But regardless of the causes of delays, we give our appreciation in advance for the hard work of everyone involved to get things done as soon as possible.
