2 & 5 Freeway Interchange: Closed Transition Road Reopened Friday

Photo: Chrissy Fiorilli-Ellington, July 13, 2013, 11 AM.  A tanker overturned on the northbound 2 to the northbound 5 Freeway transition road spilling more than 8500 gallons of gasoline, that immediately caught fire & spread into the LA River, creating a second scary fire in Elysian Valley.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)  

After a weekend in July a lot of neighbors would rather forget & months of road closure that was particularly noticeable after Dodger games, the transition road from the northbound 2 Freeway to the northbound 5 Freeway opened Friday with a bunch of politicians & Caltrans officials patting themselves on the back for doing their job & not making us wait 2 years to get it done.  Read about it: LA Times
