Freeway: The staff of Metro is backing a $6 billion proposal to widen the 710 Freeway between Long Beach and East Los Angeles to deal with increased truck traffic. Adding a lane in each direction would displace more than 400 people who live in 109 homes next to the freeway where it would be expanded. In addition, 158 businesses would have to also find new locations.  The recommendation is scheduled to be voted on by Metro’s board next month. L.A. Times

Renters:  Tenant and neighborhood activists said that an agreement has been reached to resolve a dispute between renters — several of them mariachis — and the landlord of  a Boyle Heights apartment building over an $800 rent increase, according Union de Vecinos, a neighborhood group. The tenants had gone to court to challenge the increase. Details of the agreement are scheduled to be released during an event on Thursday.
