Q: Are there any new freeways planned in the city?

A: Caltrans says that after eight decades of building freeways here, they are finished. There’s currently a tiny expansion of the 71 underway at the southeastern edge of Los Angeles County and an outside chance of a new route connecting Lancaster and Victorville but it looks like the last ribbon of L.A. freeway asphalt has finally been laid. No more reprieve from driving the 405 (aka the world’s largest parking lot.)
