Yesterday afternoon, CalTrans sent out a press release regarding nighttime grinding, digging and creating dust on the northbound lanes of the 2 Freeway. Of course, at night, you can (and should) call 1-800-CUT-SMOG to complain to the AQMD about fugitive dust, but you'll just have to leave a message.
Through the years, we've written extensively about the (now $8.6 million) sound walls as a part of the 2 Freeway Terminus Project. Click here for all our sound wall posts.
The entire press release from CalTrans follows...
