Earlier today Streetsblog spotted a few more painted curb extensions on Vermont Avenue in L.A.’s Pico-Union neighborhood.

Thermoplastic-paint extensions are in place at the Vermont Avenue intersections with Pico, Venice, and Washington Boulevards. The one-mile stretch of Vermont from Pico to Adams Boulevard is on the list of the top 40 Vision Zero priority corridors identified in the January Vision Zero Action Plan.

They are fairly similar to other Vision Zero painted extensions on Third Street and further south on Vermont Avenue.
