Council Votes to Demolish Crumbling LA Bridge

A cable-stayed bridge will replace the city's historic, often-filmed 6th Street Bridge over the Los Angeles River.

The Los Angeles City Council has voted to demolish the city's historic, often-filled 6th Street Bridge over the Los Angeles River because the 79-year-old span's concrete is crumbling and it would not survive a severe earthquake. The council voted Nov. 18 to replace it.

The double-arched bridge was the last built among a dozen historic bridges over the river east of downtown Los Angeles. Some historic preservationists hoped it could be replaced by an essentially identical bridge so its design would not be lost from the landscape, but city engineers said an exact copy is not possible because the span must be widened and strengthened. It is a much-beloved and much-filmed symbol of a proud city that embraced elegance and the automobile, the Los Angeles Times reported.
