L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti says he's gotten word from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that they plan to endorse a $1 billion plan to restore an 11-mile stretch of L.A. River north of downtown.
That means ripping out the concrete and returning the river to a more natural state. It's been one of the mayor's top priorities. The Corps' endorsement is key because they manage the river as a flood-control channel.
