As part of the project to remove the bridge, the County will also straighten the adjoining channel access roads and restore the embankments and fencing.
Thank you to everyone who worked on this issue...especially Supervisor Knabe who helped mediate its removal on the non-Long Beach side.
Next on the horizon -- I have also been working the LA County to install mile markers on the bike trail along the river so that bikers can know where they are in case they need to contact 9-1-1- for assistance. Coming soon!
I have just launched a website at: www.district5lights.com where residents of the 5th District can have photographs of their decorated homes posted in what is probably the first ever virtual Christmas Lights Parade.
Residents can send their photographs via email to: email@example.com. Please identify the address of the home and a name and means of contact for the person submitting.
We will give the "best decorated" a certificate and some Christmas cookies.
This should be fun and a great way to acknowledge residents who are decorating their homes this Christmas season.
