Broadway isn't the only Downtown thoroughfare getting a pedestrian-friendly makeover.
Earlier this month, city officials descended on the Fashion District to celebrate the groundbreaking of a streetscape improvement project that will upgrade three blocks of Los Angeles Street between 7th Street and Olympic Boulevard.
The $1.7-million project was funded by a grant from Metro, and includes:
- Removal and replacement of broken and sub-standard concrete sidewalks on both side of Los Angeles Street.
- Removal of 12 trees, which will be replaced with 26 new trees.
- Upgrades to 14 non-standard access ramps, including 4 at bumpouts.
- New high-visibility cross walks at four intersections.
- Two landscaped mid-block bumpouts with decorative lighting, planter fencing, paving, drought tolerant plants and access ramps.
- Improved pedestrian lighting at six bus stops, with existing light fixtures upgraded with LED bulbs.
