East Hollywood to Boyle Heights Concept
Since we have more momentum going forward, I though this would be a good time to start thinking about actual routes. I know that we have strong support in East Hollywood, and we have some support in Boyle Heights, so I put together a route concept that connects these neighborhoods through MacArthur Park and downtown. This route comes to 12.6 miles total, which is a respectable length. This route provides very good connectivity with the Red, Blue, and Gold lines, so it would be very easy to get to and from the cicLAvia route.
This is just my idea (Bobby’s) of a route, and nothing official, so this is just something to think about. What do you guys think of this route? Anything that you would change?
Another more general question is how long should the first cicLAvia be? Bogota’s Ciclovia is 80 miles, but many of the pilot ciclovia projects in the US have been much shorter. I am of the opinion it should be at least 10 miles to be a “real” ciclovia, but some think we should start with a shorter one that is more logistically feasible and build from there. What do you think?
