Caltrans has concluded in a report that a $44.6-million project to add an exclusive car-pool lane on the San Diego Freeway between the Harbor and Marina freeways will not have a significant impact on the environment. The 30-page environmental assessment does not examine the potential impact on motorists while the project is under way, but state Department of Transportation officials concede that putting a car-pool lane in the middle of one of the nation's busiest freeways poses a major challenge.

Everyone calls it the Century Freeway. But that's not its name. The freeway, which is under construction, actually has two names. West of the San Diego Freeway, it is officially designated the El Segundo Freeway; east of the San Diego Freeway it is the Norwalk Freeway. Now, in a tribute to Congressman Glenn M.
