Safe Streets for 17th Street Ice Cream Social
July 30, 2017 @ 11:00 am
Come join us for a day of fun and community outreach for Safe Streets for 17th Street.
Music, games and Ice Cream! AÂ “pop-up” Bike Lane, free helmets and helmet decorating plus aÂ bike obstacle and safety course by Santa Monica Spoke for the Kids!
17th Street is experiencing an increase in the number of people walking and biking. People are using the street for neighborhood trips as well as to get to and from the Expo Light Rail station at 17th and Colorado. Members of the community have reached out to say they donâ€™t feel comfortable walking or biking at night or during the early morning along 17th Street. The City is working towards adding safety improvements along 17th Street from Pico Boulevard to Wilshire Boulevard and Michigan Avenue from 14th Street to 19th Street to help address the safety concerns.
The goal for the project is to address community concerns and help people feel more safe and comfortable to walk or bike. Another goal of the project is to respond to requests to have the street feel more like a neighborhood street and less of a cut-through street.
The project proposes to improve the pedestrian lighting, create better crosswalks and make people who bike more visible and better protected. Help us make 17th Street safer and more comfortable for everyone.
Please contact Carlos Morales, Senior Transportation Planner for more information, we want to hear from you!
