About that bridge for the Expo Line

Just a quick heads up — I believe some erroneous info circulated in the media about this: The existing single-track railroad bridge over National Boulevard in the Palms area is not being demolished to make way for a wider Expo Line bridge.

The existing structure will be used along with a new Expo Line bridge built next to it. There was a bridge demolished — the old single-track bridge over Motor Avenue met the wrecking ball in July.

  1. I saw that story. The butchery of facts was a distant second behind the butchery of grammar. It was credited to a weekend editor.

  2. Picture shows that near National Blvd the Expo Line trains will be directly visible to slow-moving traffic on the 10 freeway, often moving faster than the cars. Best possible advertising.
