Tomorrow night is a meeting concerning proposed changes to the North Spring Street Bridge. It’s true, the bridge could use some improvements but I hope completely replacing structure is not one of the changes being proposed (the video doesn’t make it entirely clear). I’m also concerned about the block of historically significant buildings at the foot of the bridge near Los Angeles State Park. There was talk that these buildings would be destroyed in the bridge widening process. I certainly hope this proposal is off the table.
Another concern is the increased traffic a widened bridge would bring to the pedestrian heavy North Broadway corridor. As one of these pedestrians, I can tell you first hand the suburbanites heading east out of Downtown drive way too fast through our little hood. Slow down folks!
If you share any of these concerns, I encourage you to attend the meeting tomorrow at the Lincoln Heights Senior Center.
A discussion about plans to improve the North Spring Street Bridge
The City of Los Angeles and Caltrans are studying how to improve the North Spring Street Bridge to better accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists and commuters. Every day, many of you walk, ride and drive across the bridge to get to and from work, school, recreational activities and home.
We want to hear from you! An important decision is being made about the future design of the bridge. You are invited to attend a community meeting to learn more and view the newly developed design options.
