Misguided Attempts at Freeway Beautification

Photo: Diane Edwardson, 2006. Corner of Corralitas Drive and Rosebud Ave. Following months of neighborhood uproar on Corralitas, the childish murals, initiated by a misguided neighbor in an attempt to thwart graffiti, were painted out with CalTrans gray paint. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Photo: Larry Schulte, 2006. Oak Glen overpass on the 2 Freeway, facing north. Murals on the Oak Glen overpass are routinely hit by graffiti vandals. Clean & Green periodically repaints the murals. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

We're reviewing the photographic history of our neighborhood surrounding the 2 Freeway, in anticipation of the EIR for the 2 Freeway Terminus Project.
