The California Transportation Commission (CTC), Southern California Association of Governments, and Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce want to hear from the Los Angeles Basin residents about how they view current highway and road conditions, and proposals to stabilize funding for transportation-system repairs and maintenance.
These organizations are hosting a public forum at the California Department of Transportation-District 7 office (100 S. Main Street, Los Angeles) on July 29, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to discuss and generate feedback on those issues.
