About a month ago, I included this pic of the LA Fitness off of Cahuenga being partially demolished for a Hollywood Freeway onramp.
This was known to come for the nearby Barham exit, but Hailey Branson Potts of the LA Times elabortes:
The southbound Barham Boulevard exit ramp is set to permanently close, probably in the coming year, as part of NBCUniversal’s $1.6-billion Evolution plan to expand its Universal Studios theme park.
The planned offramp closure has infuriated neighbors who say the area is already gridlocked and that closing the busy exit will only make it worse. A group of residents calling itself Keep the Barham Ramp Assn. filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on New Year’s Eve.
