Street Plans Implements Temporary Bike Boulevard in Long Beach, CA

On Saturday, October 1st, Street Plans implemented a demonstration project as a part of the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Go Human region-wide safety and encouragement campaign in North Long Beach, CA. In partnership with the City of Long Beach and Alta Planning + Design, and with the help of local volunteers, Street Plans installed a temporary bike boulevard, featuring a pop-up traffic circle and art crosswalks. The project allowed residents to envision a reimagined streetscape with temporary features, and to get a preview of upcoming safety projects on Myrtle Avenue.

The demonstration project was implemented in conjunction with the Activate Uptown open streets event along Artesia Boulevard, where community members enjoyed music, family-friendly activities, and food, and biked, walked, skated and played in the car-free street.
