Last night Metro Board Chair Diane DuBois — Councilmember for the City of Lakewood, a highway-dependent section of L.A.County — and Doug Failing, Metro Executive Director of Highway Projects answered phone and email questions from commuters all over L.A. County on Metro Live, a live TV call-in show that streamed simultaneously on the web.

Topics included worst bottlenecks in L.A. County, the future of tollways, goods movement, I-5 and I-405 Sepulveda Pass construction, public transit to LAX and the benefits (and joys) of the Metro Freeway Service Patrol.

Former KNBC anchor and reporter Jennifer Bjorklund hosted the 1-hour call-in show that was produced by Santa Monica CityTV. We should have the video on the Source some time next week.
