  • “Antonovich Votes for Ridley-Thomas/Crenshaw Motion. With Mayor’s Vote, It Might Pass.”

    If the Fall bond sale doesn’t go through there might not be a Crenshaw corridor anyway.

    Staring that reality in the face, I wonder why anyone would advocate for a tunnel on a super-wide street to accommodate more goddamn cars.

  • Dale

    I’m a resident one block from Crenshaw Blvd. Right now with that ‘super-wide’ street we have traffic blowing up our street past our kids and homes. I want Crenshaw Blvd to be walkable, bikeable and habitable. An at grade train blasting through isn’t going to improve my neighborhood.

  • Dale, get rid of the cars first and we’ll talk about walkable, bikable and habitable.

    How about getting rid of the cars and adding a train?

  • Hey Dale,

    I can’t wait until you have that train station one block from where you live. Then I can walk and bike right over to it, instead of taking my noisy, smelly car. So excited!
