Letter: Freeway extension would mean more pollution

October 24, 2013

In the L.A. Times last weekend, a column about the perils of air pollution said, “The World Health Organization has declared air pollution a carcinogen like tobacco smoke, asbestos and arsenic, calling it a leading cause of cancer deaths globally.”

Caltrans keeps telling us that connecting the Long Beach (710) Freeway to the Foothill (210) Freeway, which will result in a huge increase of freeway traffic through our city, including the tripling of big-rig truck traffic, won't result in more air pollution. Yeah, right! And cows jump over the moon.
