Earlier today, Metro's I-405 Community Relations Team announced that the metal stump on the sidewalk of the south side of Wilshire beneath the freeway has finally been removed (see below).

The stump of an informational sign that was incompletely removed. Location: Southbound side of Wilshire Boulevard between Sepulveda and the 405 freeway.

What Dr. Cahn called "The Stump".

Props to Michael Cahn, an LACBC board member, who brought this to the attention of the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Widening Project, and Kasey Shuda, the project's community relations liaison.
