Last week, we continued the second phase of the StreetsLA’s Cool Streets urban cooling program in Sylmar. The gray topcoat enables the roadway to absorb less heat than black asphalt reducing the temperature by 10 degrees. The cool pavement treatment will be applied to 35 street segments totaling 11.1 pavement miles and 185 new trees will be planted along these streets. I prioritized segments along the corridors around schools and recreation areas where our youth walk and play.
