From Councilmember Monica Rodriguez:
Caltrans has a long history of neglected maintenance along their right-of-way in the City of Los Angeles. Freeways, onramps, and offramps are not the jurisdictions of the city, and we must rely exclusively on Caltrans to do their part to clear and maintain these areas. Thanks to the members of the community who joined our calls to Caltrans to serve our community’s priority areas with the same diligence they appear to address more affluent areas of the state, last week Caltrans conducted maintenance in Pacoima along the northbound I-5 FWY/Van Nuys Blvd offramp.
We must hold the state accountable for maintaining their right-of-way to keep the areas clean and safe for all who live near or use these freeways. Demand clean freeways from the State of California at https://csr.dot.ca.gov/index.php/Msrsubmit or call Caltrans at (916) 654-5266.
