This freeway was built in the late 1940′s and was planned to be a part of the SR-170 Laurel Canyon Freeway. That freeway was never built past the Hollywood Freeway (US 101). When the La Cienega Blvd. Freeway was originally constructed, it probably had only four lanes. No mileposts or signs exist from the original construction. It is not even signed as a freeway anymore. Only two grade separated intersections at Slauson Avenue and the Baldwin Hills Park were constructed. The Slauson Avenue OC was widened in the late 80′s. The original structure looked similar to most 1940′s bridges in CA. The segment that still has the access control runs from Rodeo Road on the north to Fairview Blvd on the south.
