    Councilmembers want to relinquish their responsibility in continuing to contribute to a car-centric L.A. and want to use oil companies as scapegoats.

    Re: “Metro Releases Final EIR For Union Station Forecourt/Esplanade”

    It seems that this project, while an improvement in many regards, will actually *remove* an existing crosswalk across Alameda St, creating a three-legged crosswalk situation at the intersection. Those wanting to cross between the intersection’s SW and SE corners will now have to cross three (!) streets to make that simple connection (or more likely will just cross illegally) because of this crosswalk removal. Three-legged crosswalks are a bad idea in most places they’re implemented, but especially so in an area that’s supposed to be pedestrian friendly.

    Considering one of this project’s goals is to “Enhance the safety and quality of pedestrian and bicycle connections between the station and El Pueblo Historic Monument, Father Serra Park, Olvera Street, and nearby business and neighborhoods,” removal of a crosswalk that directly connects to Father Serra Park seems to run contrary to those goals. :-(
