Re “Schiff seeks funds for local projects in infrastructure bill,” June 10 issue
If our Congressman Adam Schiff is successful in getting the nearly $5 million in federal funds for infrastructure included in the [President Joe] Biden bill, hopefully it will fund crossing signals on Santa Monica Boulevard at Poinsettia Place and Greenacre Avenue, like the ones currently on Fountain at Detroit and Formosa.
These are much safer, and more “official,” than sticks with signs on them in the middle of the road. Those targets do little to help. The flashing lights in the roadway alert drivers. The only upgrades to the street we have heard about this year are plans to put overhead ball lights, like the ones that have been installed in the Rainbow District (Boystown). Safety first.
