The La Ballona Elementary Safe Routes to School Project will install a number of traffic safety improvements in the neighborhood surrounding La Ballona Elementary School to make it safer and more comfortable to walk and bike to school. Proposed improvements include:

  • Curb extensions at intersections to shorten pedestrian crossing distances
  • New ADA ramps to make it easier to cross the street in a wheelchair or with a stroller
  • New high-visibility crosswalks
  • New controlled intersections with median refuge islands on Washington Blvd.
  • New street trees and pedestrian-scale lighting
  • A new protected bike lane on Elenda Street between Culver Blvd. and Washington Blvd.

This project is funded through a California Active Transportation Program Cycle 2 grant and is scheduled for construction beginning in the summer of 2018. Design and engineering work are ongoing.

Past Community Meetings:

  • Saturday, November 4, 2017: We will have a booth at the La Ballona Fall Festival, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at La Ballona Elementary School.
