Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 1, 2009. (Click on photos to enlarge.) Allesandro St. already sports a 6-8' high retaining wall from Riverside Drive to (almost) Whitmore. The Terminus Redesign calls for a 12-16' high sound wall on top of the existing wall. All the trees would be cut down for construction.

All of the trees would be cut down to build the 12-16' high sound wall along Allesandro St. They only have to replace the trees that have 8" (or more) diameter trunks on a 1:1 basis, with trees of a 15 gallon size box. In other words, we won't see a nice wall of green like we have now for decades. Additionally, we will have the added benefit of a huge canvas for graffiti vandals along the entire length of Allesandro between Riverside Drive and Glendale Blvd.
