On some streets, I noticed that the Bureau of Street Services constructed streetscapes such as sidewalk improvements, medians, landscaping and other decorations, what pays for that?
"The Bureau of Street Services Engineering Services Division has a section that specializes in applying for competitive grants. The efforts have been successful and created a relatively steady stream of outside money. That gives us these improvements that the city could not otherwise afford. These outside funding sources could be federal, state, regional, county-wide or private through programs such as, Safe Routes to School, Highway Safety Improvement Program, and Transportation Enhancement Activities Program. To efficiently complete these projects and meet the grant expiration deadlines, these projects use design-build delivery methods and are managed, designed and constructed by Bureau of Street Services crews."
What is the Bureau of Street Services doing to improve bicycle access?
"The Bureau of Street Services Engineering Services Division works closely with LADOT to plan, design and construct Class I bike paths. Some recent projects are extensions of the Los Angeles River bike paths in both the northerly and southerly directions. We are also collaborating on other bike path extensions and implementing bike lane sharrows and other ways to improve bicycle access."
