Gateway to Los Angeles (6th Street Bridge) Backpack


Built in 1932, the Sixth Street Viaduct, also known as the Sixth Street Bridge, was an historic bridge that connected the Eastside of Los Angeles to Downtown Los Angeles.

A throwback to a grittier time in Los Angeles' history, the bridge possessed a charm that transported travelers to an earlier era. For generations the 6th Street Bridge, which crossed the Los Angeles River, separated the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles commerce from the largely Latino suburbs.

In February 2016, the iconic bridge was torn down by the City of Los Angeles in an effort to modernize transit while improving infrastructure safety.

For decades the bridge served as the backdrop for countless movies, television shows and advertisements. Among the better known productions that featured the 6th Street Bridge are "Grease," "Terminator," "Lost" and "Them!" But if you look carefully at any past production featuring Los Angeles the chances are good that this bridge was featured in a cameo.
