Maybe a freeway through Silver Lake isn’t such a bad idea

A previous blog post about historic photos documenting the construction and destruction related to the 2 Freeway generated a comment from a resident who wishes the freeway builders had not stopped at Glendale Boulevard:

“I remember when I first moved to LA and used the 2,” said Matt. “I was so confused as to why it ended so abruptly and why I [needed] to take local streets just to connect to where I was going. This was before I moved to Echo Park, but even now that I am an area resident, I think the project is a good idea. It’ll bring with it a bunch of annoying construction, but I think it serves the community well to displace the commuters who are just passing through.”
