This new batch features 21 new lanes that add up to about 40 miles. There will be some set up On Hollywood Blvd, between La Brea and Sunset/Virgil; a huge lane on Parthenia between Kester and Topanga Canyon that stretches for more than eight miles; and Soto St. between 8th and Huntington, among many others.
