Crews are out this week doing striping and new crosswalks for a project called Broadway's Dress Rehearsal. Broadway is, arguably, Los Angeles' most heavily pedestrian street. The current project reallocates former car-lane space to make way for pedestrians. It's no secret that the transformation here is inspired by NYC's relatively-inexpensive street plazas, including Times Square.

Streetsblog L.A. reviewed the overall project earlier, and subsequently reported on implementation timelines. There's plenty more project details at Bringing Back Broadway.
