  1. Gee, they’re taking out the Riverside-Figueroa bridge for at least four years! That will be a real mess. And I guess someone not realizing it will drive all that length down Riverside drive — to a dead end of constructions, and have to go all the way back.

    This will force all that traffic to instead use Fletcher Driver to get across that area. And Fletcher Drive is already fairly well crowded.

    This will be a real mess and for a long time. I don’t see why it should take four years!
