BRIDGES BRIDGES BRIDGES. They are awesome so come out to hear about demolution and construction of the monumental undertaking! Dinner of course is provided.

One of America’s most famous and iconic bridges, the Sixth Street Viaduct, acts as a vital connection between the growing Arts District on the west side of the Los Angeles River and the historic neighborhood of Boyle Heights on the east side. Yet, due to a rare chemical reaction in the cement supports and seismic vulnerability, the Sixth Street Viaduct will soon be demolished and replaced. The $449 million project to replace the beloved bridge, the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project, is the largest bridge project in the history of Los Angeles.

Hello fellow ITE members!


ITE is organizing our second field trip for this quarter. We will be touring the Pasadena Traffic Management Center (TMC) and the Rose Bowl during the UCLA game against Arizona! Come see how the Civil Engineers in the Pasadena TMC is able to bring people in and out of the Rose Bowl for a HUGE event like the UCLA game.
Afterwards, we will ride the shuttle over to the game and get a glimpse of how our safety and security is ensured during football games. You will need a ticket ($15 for students)/Den Pass to get into the Rose Bowl! We will be providing rides to and from the tour. If some of you do not have a ticket to the game, we can also organize a ride to get back to UCLA after the first part of the tour. However, if you decide to stay and watch the game, we cannot guarantee a ride back.
We are meeting at Pasadena city hall at 5:15pm. Given the crowds at the game we should probably leave ucla at about 4pm.
We will be done with the tour at about 7 pm
