One of the biggest players in the entertainment business is offering to foot the bill for an aerial tram that would bring tourists to the famed Hollywood sign, The Los Angeles Times reports.
Warner Bros. has reportedly offered to put up the estimated $100 million that would be needed to build the project, which is being called the Hollywood Skyway. The tram would start from a parking structure next to the studio’s Burbank lot.
“The tramway would take visitors on a 6-minute ride more than 1 mile up the back of Mt. Lee to a new visitors center near the sign, with pathways to a viewing area,” The Times reports.
The report notes that residents of the hilly neighborhoods near the sign “have long blamed the attraction for worsening traffic, parking nightmares and disruptive tourists.”
Warner Bros. reportedly informed city official Monday of its proposed solution to the problem.
