Proposed Bicycle Boulevard with Living Streets Elements

Living Streets LA is closely following a proposal to convert 4th Street between Park La Brea and Hoover Street in Koreatown into a Bicycle Boulevard with living streets elements such as mini-plazas.  The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition organized a community walk and ride involving more than 130 people on July 24 to show some of the ideas for making 4th Street into a bike boulevard.  Green LA Girl’s July 26 blog entry also covered the walk and ride event and provides the latest information on this groundbreaking idea.

Given the strong community support to convert this underutilized road space into a usable commons in this dense urban neighborhood, we hope that 4th Street Bike Boulevard will get funded and built in a timely manner.
