What I like about the 6th Street Bridge is the elevation and the 0.4 mile stretch from the Whittier Blvd portal at Boyle Heights to the LA river. First glance from the 10 freeway this viaduct bears resemblance to the Roman aqueducts which were built as early as 300 BC and were used to carry fresh water to towns. The 6th street viaduct was built in 1932 is now threatened with possible demolition to make way for a new bridge.
