Be Part of the Arroyo Seco's Future

Event information
CALTRANS SCHEDULES ARROYO SECO PARKWAY COMMUNITY MEETINGS

LOS ANGELES – Are you interested in the future of the Arroyo Seco Parkway (SR-110), a designated National Scenic Byway? Would you like to be part of the planning process? If so, plan on attending one of two California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) hosted open house meetings in July that will provide information and receive feedback about the future of the Parkway and surrounding corridor from downtown Los Angeles to downtown Pasadena.  

A set of key recommendations for a Draft Corridor Partnership Plan (CPP) have been created by a team of consultants working for Caltrans in partnership with the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).  This is the second round of public meetings associated with this planning project.

The consultant team, led by the IBI Group, will present an overview of recommendations and seek further community feedback and input prior to finalizing the CPP Report.  The draft recommendations encompass a broad range of inter-related issues including tourism/economic development, corridor mobility (auto, public transit, bike and pedestrian), safety, historic preservation and the environment.

These meetings are being offered in two convenient geographic locations within the Arroyo Seco Parkway National Scenic Byway study area.  The Open House meetings will be held:

  • Monday, July 23, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. with refreshments from 6:00 to 6:30 pm. Castelar Elementary School, 840 Yale Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
  • Tuesday, July 24, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. with refreshments from 6:30 to 7:00 pm. South Pasadena Civic Library Community Room*, 1115 El Centro Street, South Pasadena, CA 91030.
