Welcome back to the SGV Connect podcast, this week Damien talks with Active SGV about a pop-up bike lane in Alhambra, but first Kris checks in with some of the leaders of a mutual aid organization in El Monte.
Caltrans is seeking public input in developing its local Active Transportation Plans. The L.A.-Ventura plan will identify locations for bicycle and pedestrian improvements on, across, or parallel to the state highway system.
Opening later this year, the project will capture and infiltrate rainwater and urban runoff - turning dried out and unmaintained large medians into recreation areas with paths, landscaping, and more than 300 trees.
The city currently has two bike facilities. The new plan proposes adding 39 bicycle projects and 71 pedestrian improvements over the next 10-20 years. The city council is expected to approve the plan this month.
Foothill Transit and its partners vaccinate more than 1,300 people during its March 13 pop up COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Foothill Transit Covina Transit Center. The next pop-up clinic will take place on April 17.
