Streetsblog Reader Questionnaire: CicLAvia’s Stephen Villavaso


An impromptu interview with Villavaso at San Francisco Sunday Streets, March 2011

Following the announcement of the dramatically different route for CicLAvia that came over the weekend, there’s a lot to discuss.  Later this week, both Kris Fortin and Sahra Sulaiman will have pieces on local reactions to the new route in Boyle Heights and South L.A respectively.  Given how important CicLAvia is to the Livable Streets and Streetsblog communities, we wanted to give you a chance to get any questions you have on the new route answered.

Stephen Villavaso is a professional transportation engineer with the Skanska group, known to many Streetsbloggers as the transportation engineers working on the Expo Bikeway in Culver City, West L.A. and Santa Monica.  Villavaso is also a member of the CicLAvia steering committee and has been since the beginning.  Without his expertise, CicLAvia might never have happened, and he has a huge role in helping create the routes and maps for all the CicLAvias.

Stephen agreed to answer any questions that Streetsblog readers might have regarding the new route.  Get your questions in by 5 p.m. on Wednesday and he’ll answer them as quickly as possible in a post here on Streetsblog.  You can leave questions in the comments section, or our Facebook page, or @lastreetsblog on Twitter.
