A 102″ concrete pipe under Yosemite Drive in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles built by the CWA in response to the 1934 New Year’s Day Flood which caused the death of at least 45 people in Montrose and La Crescenta and some property damage along the former Eagle Rock creek. The sides of the channel are lined with corrugated iron and it measures about five feet wide and three feet deep.
