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
