Today’s Headlines

9:05 AM PDT on October 21, 2011

Featured Headline: Transportation for America earned a lot of press across the country for its report on the state of America's bridges (its pretty bad) and a call for the county to embrace a "Fix-It-First" philosophy in transportation funding.  Locally, T4A used the I-10 bridge spanning the L.A. River as a backdrop to hold its press conference because said bridge is one of the most heavily traveled structurally deficient bridges in the country.  The L.A. Times talked to a lot of state officials about the report, while My Fox L.A. notes that L.A. is trailing the rest of the country when it comes to bridge repair.  KPCC notes that the target for the presser was Congress, specifically Los Angeles' important representatives in the US Senate, and LA Weekly just wants you to not drive under bridges.
