CicLAvia: Chinatown Route Will Be Open on Sunday

After two days of discussion, CicLAvia announced this afternoon that the spur through Chinatown will be open on Sunday, but could see hours cut short if traffic to the Dodgers playoff game proves to be overwhelming the local street grid. Flying Pigeon L.A. reported that the hub could be cut completely, but that was not the case. CicLAvia, LADOT, and LAPD met yesterday and today and came to the following decision.

To ensure the best possible day for both sets of fans, LADOT and LAPD will closely monitor the flow of vehicle traffic to Dodgers Stadium Sunday afternoon in real time. Depending upon that flow, the projected 4:00 p.m. re-opening time of Broadway in Chinatown may be adjusted to allow for vehicle traffic.
