Dispelling the "Close The Gap Myth" Who Suffers More

Posted by Joe Cano on Facebook, May 6, 2014

Pollution levels are mapped by zip code. These maps will dispel any public statements Alhambra or Monterey Park have made that they suffer most from the pollution. Pasadena awaits the same fate as El Sereno. With the 710 connecting to the 210. It will turn a dark blue as we will be on both ends of an exhaust pipe.


 Starting point, El Sereno. Darker blue due to sitting next to the end of the SR710.

Alhambra compared to El Sereno is lighter blue. South Pasadena is clearer blue because the 'north south traffic' myth does not strand up. Traffic goes east before it even gets to that area.

Monterey Park is slightly lighter than El Sereno, but darker than Alhambra. Monterey Park loudly proclaims they have suffered the most by the lack of a tunnel. They claim the cut through traffic is harming their children & elderly. They don't mention over development & high concentration of multilevel mega apartment complexes.

 Rosemead is same color as El Sereno. They suffer from sharing the pollution with El Monte from the 605 Freeway interchange. Rosemead Blvd. is also a congested roadway. Rosemead would like to push some of that 605 Freeway traffic our way. That is not a solution.
