Last week, a new parklet opened in downtown L.A.'s South Park. The next People St parklet installation is already underway on Motor Avenue in Palms. The parklet pictured is in front of C&M Cafe at 3272 Motor Avenue, a block south of the Metro Expo Line Phase 2 and the Expo bikeway's Northvale gap. Motor was improved with a road diet and bike lanes in 2012.

Motor Avenue will be receiving two parklets; the second (and larger) parklet will be at 3370 Motor Avenue.

More early construction photos after the jump.
