Lindsay Lohan Jail Next To Freeway

Imprisoning Communities: How Mass Incarceration Makes Disadvantaged Neighborhoods WorseThe irony of Lindsay Lohan's jail is that it is located next to a free-way. She of course is in jail at Lynwood's Century Regional Detention Centre for violating her parole conditions related to her drinking and driving conviction.The freeway also incorporates a public transportation line, a reminder of the options you need to think about when drinking. The north-south line, below street grade, appears to be only for merchandise (to and from the port of Long Beach).

Here is the east-west line (just north of the jail, in the highway median, above city street grade). The station is located about 1 km west of the jail (Imperial/Wilmington station), at the intersection of the Blue and Green Lines.

As far as transportation in concerned, the jail is probably the noisiest location in the metropolitan area of Los Angeles. That said, noise doesn't add straight up and she might not even hear it over the noise from inside the jail.
