Sepulveda sidewalks get a new look


Westchester Street Improvement Association Tree Improvement ProjectFollowing a years-long push by Westchester residents, both sides of Sepulveda Boulevard between 79th and 83rd streets are getting new sidewalks and curbs thanks to two federal grants.

Work on the east side of Sepulveda is being funded through a $625,000 Safe Routes to Schools grant and should be completed this month, Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin said. Safe Routes to Schools grants are designed to enable children to walk or bicycle to school or after-school programs — in this case, Orville Wright Middle School and the Westchester Family YMCA.

Bids for work on the west side of the boulevard went out this week and are being paid for by a $1-million federal grant obtained through Rep. Maxine Waters (D- Los Angeles).
