Document Description
The Project would install on- and off-street bicycle and pedestrian/multi-purpose paths within the existing street and Metro-owned ROW. The Project would use existing sidewalks and extend existing Class II bicycle lanes on West Boulevard. On 67111 Street, the Project would use the existing sidewalks and will designate the street as a Class Ill bicycle route. Street markings would be provided and bike route signs would be installed along the parkways of 67th Street. The City of Los Angeles 2010 Bicycle Plan Identifies West Boulevard and 67111 Street within the Project corridor as designated blkeways and bicycle friendly streets. This Plan also identifies the streets as part of a neighborhood blkeway network. At the Harbor Subdivision ROW (between 67th Street and Santa Fe Avenue), the Project would create two-way Class I bike paths and a separate pedestrian/multi-purpose pathway. The purpose of the Project is to provide safe dedicated walking and cycling transportation options to promote healthy neighborhoods and linkages between local communities, schools, shopping, employment centers, transit hubs, and other key destinations. It would facilitate opportunities for improved access to major transit facilities, such as the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Light Rail Transit Line, the Harbor Transit Way, the Metro Blue Line, and various rapid and local bus lines. The Project would also remove a prominent social equity barrier within the South Los Angeles community with new and improved access for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders traveling to and from schools, jobs, health care providers, as well as religious, commercial and cultural institutions. Beneficiaries of the Project include residents and employees who live and/or work within the vicinity of the Project Corridor. The area surrounding the Project Corridor has a high proportion of residents who are transit dependent and rely on walking and bicycling for both work commuting and daily life activities.
