Infographic: Our Streets. Our City
The Los Angeles Department of City Planning (LA DCP), the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LA DOT) and GOOD/Corps, an affiliate of GOOD, have teamed up to present the second infographic in the LA/2B series: Our Streets. Our City. (Check out our first one here.)
This latest infographic reveals how our streets go beyond just getting us from point A to point B. They actively shape our city’s culture—connecting lifestyles, neighborhoods and people in the wide-ranging grid that makes up Los Angeles. This design showcases the vitality of one of L.A.'s most important thoroughfares: Wilshire Blvd.
LA/2B is an ongoing collaborative program that provides an opportunity for people in Los Angeles to discuss the future of our streets and transportation. It’s a chance to create solutions that will make our city a more thriving community in the future.
