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.

Those in support of closing the 710 Freeway gap must not travel the 210 very often because this freeway has its share of daily bumper-to-bumper traffic, particularly during weekday mornings eastbound. This is without the heavy truck traffic that would instantly materialize with the gap's closure. Also, the 5 Freeway is a heavily industrial corridor that favors heavy truck traffic; the La Crescenta, La Cañada and Pasadena environs are decidedly not. Any cursory view of a map will show that the triangle created by the 5, 210 and 710 freeways gives the shortest, most direct route to and from Long Beach to the 5. Closing the gap simply adds more miles and time on the road for trucks whose cost efficiency would be negatively affected; and, we all know who pays for shipping costs.

Although I agree with Assemblyman Anthony Portantino that a tunnel for the 710 extension is wrong (“Caltrans can't be trusted with the 710,” Aug. 26), I have to differ with his letter about the 710 extension being built. The extension would solve a transportation problem by lessening traffic on the 5 Freeway between the 2 and 10 freeways, and easing traffic on the 210 Freeway on the western edge of Pasadena. As it is now, there is one main path for southbound traffic, and that is the 5 Freeway.

If transportation officials opt to extend the Long Beach (710) Freeway with a tunnel, La Cañada Flintridge leaders are prepared to fight the project, which they say could have a serious environmental impact on the city. The City Council on Monday night approved setting aside $500,000 for litigation and other costs related to protecting the city from the project. The designation does not affect the city's budget and no money will be spent until the council approves the amount at a future meeting.

With traffic roaring in their ears and diesel fumes mixing with the warm spring air, four people settled into canvas chairs on the Gould Avenue overpass above the Foothill (210) Freeway this week, their gaze focused unwaveringly on the roadway below. The four were collecting data for a Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority study of local traffic patterns. The data will go into the environmental impact report for the 710 gap. The study is controversial, as La Cañada Flintridge officials and others believe Metro and Caltrans will favor a 4.5-mile freeway tunnel connecting the Long Beach (710)
