Today, #DamienTalks with Olga Arroyo and Jean Marie Hance with Community and Construction Relations for the Regional Connector Project in Downtown Los Angeles. With the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) going in the ground next week, it seemed the perfect time to connect with the Regional Connector.
The conversation is wide ranging and goes on for over twenty minutes, a rarity for this podcast. We cover a lot of ground, including:
Despite my best efforts, they would not tell me the names of the stations or the TBM. Even more disappointingly, no matter how many twitter accounts I create and spam them, I will not be able to get a station named after me.
But there is other exciting new. The TBM will be lowered into the ground next week at a special ceremony at the station at 1st and Central. Because it is an active construction zone, attendance is limited. You can get more details for the event in the podcast and can RSVP (if there's space) by emailing email@example.com.
