Wilmington Safe Streets Celebration and Bike Ride

Wilmington Safe Streets Celebration and Bike Ride

This weekend residents joined us on Anaheim Street for a slow-paced bike ride to celebrate the new street design in Wilmington. During this ride through the neighborhood, participants learned of the many improvements that have come to the area as well as some of the new improvements that are on its way. Since 2017, LADOT has installed safety improvements on 2.2 miles of Anaheim St, between Figueroa St and Henry Ford Ave. Currently, the city is using temporary materials as a "quick-build" version of many of the safety improvements planned for Anaheim St, including:

  • New bike lanes
  • New center turn lanes 
  • Protected Intersections

Those who joined also enjoyed free food, music, kids' activities, bike safety training, and more.
