As anyone who’s ever taken the 101 freeway knows, traffic in LA is a strange beast. Of the 50 most traffic-riddled metropolitan areas in the United States, Los Angeles is the worst.
So it should come as no surprise that thinkers at Caltrans and the Van Alen Institute are hosting an exhibition about the potential impacts of high-speed rail on Los Angeles.
The free Life at the Speed of Rail exhibit will feature a presentation of the winning entries from its high-speed rail competition as well as an interactive discussion about the role of design in California’s high-speed future.
