Cedillo Celebrates Street Signal Installation on Sichel Street
Continues to Improve Public Safety in the Lincoln Heights Community

Los Angeles—Councilmember Cedillo continues to improve public safety in Council District 1 with the installation of a traffic signal along N. Mains Street. From January 2010 through October 2016, there have been 4 pedestrian and bicyclist collisions at N. Main Street and Sichel and a total of 40 pedestrian and bicyclist collisions along N. Main Street.

“When we started in office, the Lincoln Heights community told us this was a priority for them,” stated Councilmember Gil Cedillo. “We are proud to activate the street signal on Sichel and Main, making it safer for our seniors and school students to walk across the busy Main Street,” added Councilmember Cedillo.

The traffic signal at Sichel Street and N. Main Street cost approximately $250,000. LADOT completed a traffic study, which recommended the installation of a new signal, but had no funding identified to complete the project. Working in partnership, the Office of Councilmember Cedillo and LADOT identified the funding necessary for the design and installation of the signal.

Councilmember Cedillo was joined by students from Sacred Heart Elementary School, Sacred Heart High School, Lincoln Heights Senior Center, and members of the City family (Department of Engineering, LADOT, and LAPD).

Councilmember Gil Cedillo currently represents the 1st Council District, which includes all or parts of the neighborhoods of Glassell Park, Cypress Park, Highland Park, Mt. Washington, Solano Canyon, Sycamore Grove, Elysian Park, Echo Park, Westlake, Angelino Heights, Temple Beaudry, Lafayette Park, Chinatown, Forgotten Edge, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, Pico Union, Adams-Normandie, University Park, Mid Cities and Mac Arthur Park.
