At the southern end of the Hyde Park neighborhood, this quaint section of Crenshaw Blvd with sections of street-fronting retail carries the promise of a dynamic neighborhood retail corridor. Great Streets seeks to make this section of Crenshaw safer and more accessible for those traveling by foot or by bike. As Metro constructs the Crenshaw Line to the north of Florence Ave, Great Streets will ensure that other parts of Crenshaw Blvd are not left out of new activity and investments in the Hyde Park community. Streetscape improvements to this stretch of Crenshaw can happen in conjunction with streetscape improvements in Park Mesa Heights and other sections of the Crenshaw corridor.
A Safe and Beautiful Corridor for All
On the heels of a tragic fatal crash on this stretch of Crenshaw Blvd. in 2013, community members rose up and worked with the City to secure $2 million in funds to improve safety on Crenshaw Blvd. from Florence Ave. to 79th St.
The investments include new pedestrian crosswalks, flashing crosswalk warning beacons, concrete curb extensions and median islands with trees.
