A VALLEY OF ENDLESS SURPRISES
Sepulveda Pass Tunnel
Postcard gift to The Museum from Gary Fredburg October 2015
Do you have any idea of what a half million dollars in 1930 would be worth today? Well, that amount is actually a little less than what the Sepulveda Pass tunnel cost when it was opened in 1930. Most drivers who use the 405 freeway today are unaware that the tunnel, which took 8 years to build, still carries traffic from the west side into the San Fernando Valley.
Many Valley residents can recall how a rush hour accident in the two lane pass could cause hours and hours delay.
Today, there is much debate about the possibility of a light-rail system through the Sepulveda Pass. Your memories about Valley transportation and opinions about its future are important to your Museum. Share them with The Museum Community today. comments by Jerry Fecht
