LA gears up for long-awaited opening of Sixth Street Viaduct, connecting Boyle Heights to downtown

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles will begin a three-day community celebration Friday to mark the completion of the Sixth Street Viaduct, a new connection between Boyle Heights and the downtown Arts District that replaces one of the city's most iconic structures.

The previous viaduct, built back in 1932, was a city landmark that made appearances in films and television shows, mostly notably "Grease" and "Terminator 2: Judgement Day."
