Pacoima is getting its first-ever neighborhood traffic circle (or roundabout)—I call it progress!
Yesterday, I joined the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, the Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, and community members for the groundbreaking of the neighborhood traffic circle, which will be located at the intersection of Telfair Avenue and Montague Street. Roundabouts are often found in more affluent neighborhoods, but the residents of Council District 7 deserve the absolute best, too.
As part of the project, which is designed to slow speeds and create a more “people-friendly” intersection, there will be new:
– Curb ramps;
– Crosswalks, and
Telfair Avenue and Montague Street connect with many neighborhood destinations, including our nearby Montague Elementary School as well as future investments along the Pacoima Wash.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of April 2023.
