Last Day for Comments on Hyperion Bridge

 Hyperion

Thanks much for being part of our campaign to advocate for a safer Hyperion Bridge. This issue has received tremendous media attention and we now have Glendale Councilmember Friedman and State Assemblymember Gatto on our side asking for a more complete-streets approach to the Hyperion Bridge rehab.
This past Monday, an overwhelming amount of people spoke in favor or a slower and safer Hypersion at the Hyperion Bridge public hearing. You can read more details about the hearing and the powerful testimony at Los Angeles Streetsblog.

 

Here is an update on what you can do to support a safer, slower Hyperion Bridge:
1. Send an email as outlined in the action alert by Thursday, November 7th. So far, 170 of you have already sent in our letters. Let’s get more support.
2. Los Feliz residents and stakeholders: Instead of having you come to the Los Feliz Neighborhood Council’s Transportation Committee (scheduled for Tuesday, November 5), we encourage you to come to the Los Feliz NC Board Meeting on Tuesday, November 19:
When: Tuesday, November 19; 7:30 p.m.
Where: 1965 Hillhurst Ave., Los Angeles, 90027
More info.
3. Silver Lake residents and stakeholders: The Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Board will have a board meeting on Wednesday, November 6.
When: Wednesday, November 6; 7:00 p.m.
Where: Micheltorena Elementary Auditorium – 1511 Micheltorena St., Los Angeles, CA 90026
4. Mark your calendars for a walking tour led by The Big Parade’s Dan Koeppel over the Hyperion Bridge
When: Sunday, November 3rd; 10 a.m.
Where: We meet at the Mullholland Fountain – at the southwest corner of Riverside Drive and Los Feliz Boulevard
This 6-mile first hits Griffith Park (uphill!) to get a good overview of the river; then it be tours some of the newer and lesser-known parks–including the new North Atwater Park–along the L.A. River before it descends along the riverbank for a double-crossing of the Hyperion Bridge. The walk is a loop that should be arriving at the bridge at around noon (times are approximate) to hear some speakers and discuss development plans for the bridge.

Did we mention there’s a hearing on the future design on the Hyperion Glendale Bridge Redesign? Because if we hadn’t mentioned it before, we really should have. Monday – I don’t know how much more we can write about the debate over the Hyperion Glendale Bridge Redesign. But I guess we’ll find out tomorrow. The […]

The Hyperion Bridge Uprising Storms the Gates

I’m going to make a little confession. When I first wrote about the Glendale Boulevard-Hyperion Avenue Complex of Bridges redesign project, I was resigned to a negative outcome. I believed the Bureau of Engineering was too far along in the process, and city leaders too entrenched in the outcome. At the time, the city noted […]

Monday is the big public hearing on the proposed redesign of the Glendale-Hyperion Complex of Bridges. While groups of advocates are preparing formal comments on the dangerous proposed redesign, and its potentially dangerous impact to the surrounding communities, we believe that the personal stories of dangerous commutes and unsafe situations may be what carries the […]
