Go Ave 26
How can community engagement better inform first/last mile solutions that are low-cost and high-impact?
Go Ave 26 is a project that supports pedestrians and public transit users near the Lincoln/Cypress Station on the Metro Gold Line. This Metro stop and several nearby bus lines support the neighborhoods of Elysian Valley, Cypress Park, and Lincoln Heights and while it provides necessary transportation between many different areas, the station area and nearby intersections lack clarity and safety. Avenue 26 is car-centric area is extremely difficult to navigate and represents typical conditions throughout Los Angeles. It’s marked by freeway on and off ramps, narrow sidewalks, and no pedestrian oriented signage. This year-long project will feature community engagement and physical design interventions that make getting to and from public transit hubs along Avenue 26 easier, safer, and more welcoming.
Go Ave 26 is funded by TransitCenter and in partnership with government entities LA Metro, LADOT, Caltrans and advocacy groups including LA Walks, Investing In Place, and LA County Bicycle Coalition. This project has the opportunity to inform Metro’s station area plans as it relates to first/last mile strategies and investments, hopefully serving as model through LA County.
