The 2.4-mile segment of the Golden State Freeway from Lankershim Blvd. to Osborne St. in Sun Valley was officially dedicated Tuesday in a ceremony conducted by civic leaders, highway officials and Valley youth groups. Construction on the $4,748,700 section was started in September, 1961. The completed extension brings the freeway's length to 21 1/2 miles, starting at its junction with the Santa Monica Freeway at the East Los Angeles interchange. Highway officials said the last 5 1/2-mile gap, between Osborne and the San Diego Freeway, will be completed before the end of this year."
