Damien on KPFK Today at 2:30 Talking HOT Lanes.

Just a quick programming note. Damien Newton and Stephanie Wiggins, the woman overseeing Metro’s ExpressLanes implementation, will be on KPFK 90.7 F.M. from 2:30 to 3:00 pm later today discussing how the ExpressLanes one-year pilot program is working. The duo were interviewed this morning by Laurie Kaufman and Howard Blume for Deadline L.A.

You can listen to KPFK by tuning your radio dial to 90.7 on the F.M. setting, or listen online here. I’m told that the shows will post to the web archives sometime tomorrow and Streetsblog will link to it on social media and Wednesday’s “Today’s Headlines.”
