A bit of traffic relief for over-the-hill travel! Closed since a February storm washed out a large chunk of the famous route, the portion of Mulholland Drive reopened today between Laurel Canyon Avenue and Coldwater Canyon Boulevard. "All concrete k-rails and barricades installed have been completely removed and the street is now open to traffic," said Cora Jackson-Fossett, a spokesperson of the Department of Public Works. "The Bureaus of Engineering and Street Services, respectively, designed and constructed the bulkhead to support the roadway as well as reconstructed the street and built a guardrail." That was followed by the Department of Transportation installing new signage and restriping this morning. The expensive project highlighted a need for why the city shouldn't deplete its reserve funds during a budget crisis.
