Streetsblog reports that the heavily anticipated makeover of Figueroa Boulevard, known as MyFigueroa, has at last overcome challenges from the Shammas auto dealership group paving the way for LA's first complete street. In a letter to the City last week, Shammas withdrew its appeal of the project. "The MyFigueroa project will be Los Angeles' first large-scale "complete streets" makeover. It creates a street that's truly welcoming and safe for everyone. The project features widened sidewalks, wayfinding, landscaping, pedestrian-scale lighting, improved bus stops, and the city's first protected bikeway or cycle track."
