A video preview of the new Sixth Street Bridge

Video of Sixth Street Replacement Bridge

BOYLE HEIGHTS —  With the old Sixth Street Bridge demolished, work is now beginning on building the $482 million replacement bridge that will span the L.A. River as well as freeway lanes and train tracks. The new bridge resembles an elevated, concrete freeway framed with swooping, giant arches.  This video that simulates a flyover above and below the new bridge gives you an idea of  how the structure will be seen from different perspectives.

The replacement bridge  is scheduled to open at the end of 2020

  1. Why didn’t the video show all the prospective tags and so-called “street art” my friends in Boyle Heights adore?

  2. That’s one heckuva ADA-compliant ramp.

    What if you bike on the pedestrian ramps – I can’t tell if there are access points at the ramp entrances to the bike lane. I see some narrow slits that you can… possibly pass a bike through. But they look like they’re a foot wide.
