Hilarious. What else did they expect? We were against the extension from the beginning, and knew what would happen.
So what are they complaining about? They’re actually trying to blame Caltrans for their own intentional act. The big problem is Burbank’s inane (and Flatland-favoritism) decision to run Empire onto the Hill.
The old original late-50s freeway/surface street design brilliantly kept Lockheed traffic away from everyone else. Grismer congestion would not be an upcoming problem but for this new reality. Hillside people always got on/off near there anyway.
Only the oldtimers remember the horrors of what we used to call “Lockheed traffic.” That’s too bad. But at least now we’ve got “Change”!
