Mobile Workshop: Replacing a Hollywood Icon: Touring the $482 Million Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
November 7, 2018

The nearly half-billion-dollar Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project is the largest bridge project in the history of the City of Los Angeles, making it one of the most expensive infrastructure projects ever built in the city. The new, 3,500-foot long structure, being built by the City’s Bureau of Engineering, will replace the original bridge, long-known for its Hollywood cameos in movies like GREASE!, as well as countless television shows, music videos, and commercials. The design of the new viaduct, known as “The Ribbon of Light,” features ten pairs of arches, engineering and technical firsts, and the City’s first, under-bridge park. The viaduct stretches over the Los Angeles River, 18 railroad tracks, art galleries, and warehouses, as well as a major freeway, and will loom over a 12-acre park with water, sports and art elements. The tour will take visitors to the project site and into the Los Angeles River for a chance to visit one of Hollywood’s favorite locations to capture Los Angeles’ gritty, urban landscape.

Number of Participants: 100
