Congressman Henry Waxman Calls on US Secretary of Transportation to Investigate 405 Delays, Help Speed Completion
Today, Congressman Henry Waxman called on the US Secretary of Transportation to investigate the 405 delays. We appreciate Congressman Waxman’s “strong concern” for the delays and their impact for Angelenos. Waxman called for Secretary Ray LaHood to “do everything in his power to speed completion of the project.”
Some highlights from Waxman’s letter (emphasis added):
“The construction has been a nightmare for the several hundred thousand commuters who pass along I-405 on a daily basis and any delays caused by mismanagement or incompetence are simply unacceptable. ...
I urge you to initiate an investigation into the problems with the project and to help ensure that it gets back on track and is completed as quickly as possible.”
