Sound wall project for 605 freeway breaks ground

Metro Directors Don Knabe and Diane DuBois, along with other Metro, Caltrans and CHP officials broke ground Thursday on a $14-million sound wall project along the 605 freeway in the city of Whittier and unincorporated county.
The project consists of approximately three miles of sound walls on both sides of the freeway with a scheduled completion of winter 2013. Metro funded the entire $14 million from Prop C and Measure R monies.

  1. That photo highlights the absurdity of most “ground breaking” ceremonies. It is mainly a photo op for politicians. Importing dirt and putting on a sheet of plastic in a parking lot, that will not be broken up, is so bizarre.
