LACMA’s Journey To The Los Angeles County Museum Of Art

The 106 mile journey from the Jurupa Valley off Interstate Highway 15 in Riverside County to Los Angeles has finally ended. This 340 ton boulder traveled on surface streets at 3 MPH and made several stops along the way.  It could not go under any bridge because of its 30 foot height, and the length of the vehicles required wide maneuvering paths to clear itself.  It took 3 diesel tractor trailers to manage to move it along its journey.


I managed to come across the journey when it arrived in Cerritos, off South Street between Studebaker Road and Palo Verde Avenue, right by the Cerritos Auto Square.  It then made its journey through Lakewood, into Long Beach on Atlantic Avenue.  I must thank Fox 11’s Lauren Sivan for the tip to where it was parked in Long Beach.  It had its problems when it passed the Long Beach Memorial Hospital;  the 6% grade going downhill near Willow Street where the Newport-Inglewood earthquake fault line crosses Atlantic Avenue forms a bowl, making it treacherous for the boulder to proceed.  The uphill battle required plenty of power from the 3 diesel trucks to climb up the grade, while the downhill made it extremely dangerous, causing a risk of going out of control, should the brakes fail.  I managed to get some pictures when it passed by at Pacific Coast Highway, (State Highway 1).


Finally, I headed to Western and Wilshire to capture the last leg of the journey on Saturday Morning.  The pictures will speak for themselves.

These are the images from its stop in the Lakewood/Cerritos area on South Street, by the Cerritos Auto Center.  Next up:  The Stop at Bixby Knolls on Atlantic Avenue (Thank you Lauren Sivan for the heads up!)

Okay, I must take care of business before posting the pics…she tipped me off.  Now stop slobbering guys!  Your wife, fiancee or girlfriend will toss a rock at the screen if you don’t ! 


The traffic jam on Atlantic Blvd in Bixby Knolls as I approach the boulder…note the sign that says Big Rock Ahead…


Next up…the scenes from Atlantic & PCH:



And finally, the last stretch on Wilshire Blvd in the Wilshire District:


These are in order of the days I took the pics.  Not every pic is posted, but all are mine except for the head shot of Lauren Sivan.Image

  1. Hello Webmaster, I noticed that https://clevelandfoxers.wordpress.com/2012/03/11/lacmas-journey-to-the-los-angeles-county-museum-of-art/ is ranking pretty low on Google and has a low Google PageRank. Now the Google PageRank is how Google is able to see how relevant your webpage is compared to all the other webpages online, if you cannot rank high at the top of Google, then you will NOT get the traffic you need.

However, we can show you how to get to the top of Google with no out of pocket expenses (free traffic), no stupid ninja tricks, no silly mind control techniques, and this will be all white hat with no blackhat software or tactics that could possibly land you on bad terms with Google and put you in the dreaded “Google Sandbox”.
