The Week in Livable Streets Events

sblog_calendarBike counts, bike meetings. Walk to school day, mural walks. And a bridge. It’s a diverse week in Livable Streets Events.

  • Tonight! –  Los Angeles City Councilmember José Huizar will join the Bureau of Engineering and architect and bridge designer Michael Matzlan at a meeting tonight in Boyle Heights to show the latest model and update the community on the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project. We’ve given a lot of coverage to the plan for the new bridge as it could be a major bike-ped connector between the Downtown and Eastside. We’ll have a full report tomorrow. Or, you can go to the meeting tonight. Details, here.
  • Tuesday, Saturday – Over the next two weeks, LACBC is conducting volunteer bike counts at locations throughout the city. Visit our calendar section to find out how you can volunteer,
  • Tuesday – We don’t always promote Reason Foundation events, but when we do they are around congestion pricing and mileage-based user fees. There’s a symposium tomorrow. Smart people will be there. Get the details, here.
  • Wednesday – While there are Walk to School Day events planned throughout Walktober, this is the official date. If you’re school doesn’t have something planned, don’t despair, you can program one literally at any time. My son’s Walk to School Day is the 24th.

  • Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee hearing meets at 2 p.m. There is an update scheduled on Great Streets and an overall comment on how LADOT is doing from LADOT GM Seleta Reynolds. Read the agenda, here.
