Earlier this year, Los Angeles completed its most ambitious complete streets project: My Figueroa. This project transformed four miles of streets from car-dominant roadways to balanced, multi-modal facilities, suitable for all users on foot, bike, transit, or car. The project transcends transportation and makes the streets it features, places for people to spend time and enjoy, not just pass through. The spine of the project is Figueroa Street, one of the City’s flagship streets that connects some of its most important landmarks. Join us on a tour of the project by bike and experience LA’s most ambitious protected bike lane facility to date, and learn about the features and highlights of the project and the surrounding neighborhoods.
