Los Angeles civic centre, one of the most walkable, transit and bike-friendly areas of the city, became more pedestrian-friendly with the added improvements at the intersection of First and Main streets. Similarly to what we reported on our recent post Design interventions for safer streets, the city Department of Transportation new treatments aims to make the area safer for pedestrians.
According to StreetsBlog LA, a painted curb extension with bollards and pavement markings was included at Main Street as well as rubber curb and knock-down bollards on First Street, see images below. These initiatives will force drivers to slow down when turning left providing a safer environment for pedestrians.
