L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa talks solutions for traffic congestion
Jason Rzucidlo reports from inside the downtown Los Angeles Marriott
for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's speech to Town Hall Los Angeles.
He discussed his plans to decrease the traffic congestion in America's
No. 2 city. Villaraigosa is asking for the public's help to get
the Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA)
bill through Congress. Since 2005, the number of Metro Rapid bus
routes in Los Angeles has doubled to 26. In addition, officials
plan to convert 25 miles of carpool lanes on the 10 and 110 freeways
into toll roads to further reduce traffic.
