Last week I had the incredible opportunity to join hydrologists Mark Hanna and Matt Bardol of Geosyntec on a heli-tour of the L.A. River. With the recent April showers, it was the perfect storm to capture the seasonal flows of the river which further animate the intricacies its course.¬† Passing overhead, it was inspiring to see all of the opportunities associated with the river, with the greatest of all, of course, being… the Piggyback!¬† ¬†Situated just a stones-throw from Union Station and the rest of downtown, it is no wonder why the PBy project has made it into the future planning vision(s) for the City.
