The City of Los Angeles' Bureau of Street Services (StreetsLA) has been awarded 3.9 million dollars in Metro and local funding to provide much needed pedestrian and transit improvements on Melrose Avenue from Highland Avenue to Fairfax Avenue. The awarded grant includes funding for lighting and access improvements at bus stops, sidewalk widening between Orange Grove Avenue and Ogden Drive, gateway and wayfinding signage, street furniture, and shade trees. The funds are now available for us to engage in community outreach, develop the project design, and ultimately implement the improvements. The construction of this project is anticipated to be completed by Summer 2023.
