The First 15 LA Streets Getting Big Great Streets Makeovers

New, 20 comments

In October of last year, we heard about Mayor Garcetti's plan to turn sections of 40 streets into Great Streets, friendlier and more accessible to all people, regardless of their chosen mode of transportation. Just about two months ago, the mayor name-dropped six of the first 15 streets to get the makeover treatment. (The suspense!) Tomorrow morning, says the LA Times, he'll make an official announcement about all of the first 15—there's one in each of the council districts—but we've got the list already down below. Previously, the Mayor had just made general but exciting-sounding statements about Great Streets being "saturated" with services, or being turned into green streets. Hopefully, his announcement tomorrow will have more detailed information on what exactly will be done to each street segment to make it more, ya know, great.
