City Holds Groundbreaking for the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project
February 20, 2015
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Jose Huizar, Congressmember Xavier Becerra, State Senator Kevin de Leon, and Assemblymember Miguel Santiago assisted the Bureau of Engineering in breaking ground for the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement project. The ground breaking ceremony was held under the existing Viaduct. The event featured Michael Maltzan Architecture’s 65-foot long design model of the new design.
"Unfortunately, the iconic 6th Street bridge is fatally damaged. But this challenge represents a rare opportunity to build a modern landmark for Los Angeles that accommodates our modern traffic needs – with improved vehicle flow, pedestrian amenities, bicycle infrastructure, and a dramatic design that demonstrates our city’s place as the creative capital of the world," Mayor Garcetti said. "Investing in L.A.’s infrastructure is a cornerstone of my back to basics agenda. We are a world class city, and it’s time we invested in world class infrastructure."
