Built at a cost of $2.26 million, the stretch extends northward to Magnolia Blvd. in North Hollywood from the junction of the Ventura and Hollywood Freeways. It is the first section of a link that will connect the Hollywood and the Golden State Freeways. Ceremonies opening the freeway were sponsored by the North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Valleywide Committee on Streets, Highways and Transportation. Public officials attending the dedication included Valley Assemblymen Tom Bane and Tom Carrell. The three old cars belong to the Horseless Carriage Club."
