The article partially reads, "A $1,000,000 change in San Fernando's traffic pattern soon will change San Fernando Road into a one-way street. Southbound traffic will flow curb-to-curb down San Fernando Road, with a four-lane companion highway for northbound traffic now being laid out along the course of narrow Truman St. A new railway depot and the extension of Mission Blvd. through to the lanes of Truman St. are included in the mammoth re-routing projcet [sic]."; See images #00132605 through #00132607 for all photos in this series.
