Councilman Curren Price on Feb. 13, invited local students from Twenty-Eighth Elementary School to celebrate the addition of a new traffic signal at Adams Boulevard and Stanford Avenue.
The traffic signal, which will increase visibility and calm traffic on neighborhood streets, is one of four that are being installed as part of the “Safe Routes to School” project this year. Additional improvements are slated for Dolores Huerta Elementary School and Quincy Jones/Synergy Charter Academy.
"I look forward to continuing to work with LA Department of Transportation, as well as neighboring schools, parents and students to enhance pedestrian safety Districtwide," Councilman Price said. "By implementing safety improvements by way of traffic signals, speed humps or high visibility crosswalks, we are creating safer streets and giving the power back to the students to choose how they want to get to school."
Safe Routes to School has been responsible for developing and implementing safety plans that combine street improvements with safety, as well as education and promotes the simple act of walking to school.
If you have any questions about pedestrian safety or any other issue, call Councilman Price's District Office at (323) 846-2651.
