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 don’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.
