Seventh Street Open for Cycling

This morning, a crowd of about 200 celebrated the completion of the 7th Street bike lanes. These are among the first projects implemented under the city's new bike plan. They're also the city's first bike lanes in the population-dense central Los Angeles neighborhoods of Koreatown and Westlake. And they're the first bike lanes to reach downtown Los Angeles.

Today's press conference included a ceremonial melting of the thermoplastic on the final bicycle lane icon for the project. Los Angeles City Councilmember Ed Reyes, assisted by city staff, wielded a blowtorch and melted in the bike symbol. Also taking turns at thermoplastic installation were Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition executive director Jennifer Klausner, and city Department of Transportation bikeway staffers Michelle Mowery and Tim Fremaux.
For more information on these bike lanes, see earlier coverage at Eco-Village and CicLAvia.
