Next EPIA meeting: Updates on the SR2 Terminus Freeway project

Our next EPIA town hall meeting on Thursday, April 5 will feature a representative from Metro (MTA) to update everyone on the status of the SR2 Terminus Freeway project.

50 years ago, residents kept the freeway from expanding through Echo Park. Now that there are more and more cars on the road, the city is hoping to improve traffic flow on the increasingly congested 2 Freeway as it transitions into Glendale Boulevard. However, residents and governing bodies haven’t always agreed on the direction of the project, and the Metro has adopted plans despite resident input and concerns. At the next meeting, we’ll have an opportunity to get updates and ask questions on the project.

This is an important opportunity to learn more about the project. Bring your neighbors, friends, and roommates to the meeting on Thursday, April 5 at 7:00 pm, in Williams Hall at Barlow Hospital.
