As part of Safe Routes to School (SRTS), District 9 recently welcomed the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Trinity Street and Adams Boulevard. The latest improvement will enhance the safety of kids walking and bicycling to and from Trinity Street Elementary School.
The new traffic signal, which helps increase visibility and calm traffic on neighborhood streets, is one of three that have been installed in District 9 this year. Other improvements have been implemented in the neighborhoods surrounding Dolores Huerta, Quincy Jones / Synergy Charter Academy, and 28th Street Elementary Schools through the SRTS initiative.
Since being elected to Office in 2013, increasing the safety of City streets has been a priority for Councilmember Curren Price. "I am happy to continue keeping that promise by implementing safety improvements by way of traffic signals, speed humps or high visibility crosswalks," said Councilman Price. "We are creating safer streets and giving the power back to the students to choose how they want to get to school."
If you have any questions about pedestrian safety or any other issue, call Councilman Price's District Office at (323) 846-2651.
