LA River Wall

The Los Angeles river which parallels the I-710 in most of its last few miles within the city used to soak the county from its source in San Fernando valley, San Gabriel mountains and Santa Susana mountains, about fifty one miles down its mouth in Long Beach.
It used to inundate surrounding areas because of its changing course until some portion of its route was fixed by concrete channels. In the early days, its water has been supplying the communities in and around the county. The river now suffers from agricultural and commercial pollution. In some portions the riverbed is exposed and dry; on others, shrubs and grass occupy the once healthy flowing water of the river.
Shown above is the portion at the Wardlow street bridge. The pavement is a boon to joggers and bikers for the unobstructed space on their routine.
