Cedillo Unveils Pedestrian Safety Improvements
Making it safer for those walking between Castelar Elementary School and Alpine Recreation Center

Los Angeles—In an effort to increase pedestrian safety along Yale Street for those walking to and from Castelar Elementary School and the Alpine Recreation Center, Councilmember Cedillo has completed pedestrian safety improvements to benefit the residents and visitors of Chinatown. Project elements along this high pedestrian area include: curb extensions, a landscaped median island, curb ramps, and continental crosswalks. Funding for the project was made possible by an Active Transportation Program Grant ($690K) from the federal government.

“We promised the students at Castelar Elementary School at the start of their summer break that we would have safety improvements completed by the time school started. Here we are today, celebrating the completion of this important public safety project with a ribbon cutting,” mentioned Councilmember Cedillo. “These improvements will make it safer for children and families to cross the street in a heavily pedestrian utilized area. Families can now go to and from the Alpine Recreation Center, Castelar Elementary School, local temples of worship and the Chinatown Library with a little more confidence knowing the crosswalk is brightly painted. We are proud to be making the First District #1,” added Councilmember Cedillo.

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.
