Crazy Nimbys. Imagine how many freeways we would have had if it wasn't for them. Beverly Hills Freeway, Laurel Canyon Freeway, Pacific Coast Freeway, and countless others could have helped so much in terms of traffic relief in Los Angeles. The people in South Pasadena were ok with a tunnel back in the 1990s I believe then when Caltrans begin to study the tunnel, they were against it. Like AgentSteel said, this freeway needs to be built. Its a huge gap in our freeway network here.
