A feasibility study was just released which discuses the possibility of capping the 101 Hollywood Freeway as it travels below grade in Hollywood. The feasibility study concluded it would cost $950 million dollars and could begin construction in 2012.
The freeway conversion, backed by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Los Angeles redevelopment officials and local politicians, would turn the top of the freeway into a 44-acre "locals-first community park." It would serve what advocates say is one of the city's most parks-poor areas.
The park would be located between the Hollywood/Western (3 blocks) and Hollywood Vine (6 blocks) Red Line subway stops.
