The Cahuenga Parkway over Cahuenga Pass opened in 1940 with six lanes of traffic divided into two directions by the Pacific Electric trolley tracks down the middle. When the limited access roadway was completed to Downtown Los Angeles in 1954 in conjuction with the widening of the parkway in the pass by removal of the trolley tracks, the route as a whole was renamed the Hollywood Freeway. A new peril was created on the Cahuenga Pass Freeway as a rainstorm loosened rocks on bordering hillsides and sent them crashing down on the pavement. No one was reported injured. Photo dated: January 15, 1952.
