I would love to see (or hear) a musical road installation. The funding for a musical road, which is more of a luxury, not an actual transportation improvement, should be funded of donated monies, as for the name change on the 14 fwy. should not be funded from donated monies. The State should be obligated and required to update freeway signs. We pay our Garcetti tax(es) on Measure "M", and Measure "R", as well as (former) Governor Browns "SB-!" in which all three of these bills are to fund transportation improvements. ** We also need to push for the 138 fwy. to be built now, not in the year 2050.
