Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick opened the new Arnona Road on the east side of the valley today.
"This new road will give the vehicles headed to the nearby gravel pit a safer route, and guide that traffic away from most of the residents in the area," Commissioner Kirkpatrick said. "This road will take construction traffic off of Mt. Hood, Alto and Hollywood."
Arnona is about a mile long with one lane in each direction. It connects Lake Mead Boulevard to a gravel pit to the north that was previously only accessible from Alto Avenue and Los Feliz Street.
This new road gives construction traffic a safer route that also brings the traffic away from denser residential areas.
