Monday, April 13, 2020 - AWARD OF CONTRACT for La Ballona Elementary School Safe Routes to School Project. 

La Ballona Elementary School Safe Routes to School Plans to be considered by the City Council on February 3rd, at 7 pm. 

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 to go to City Council in May 2019. Design and engineering work are currently ongoing.
