Larchmont Street Re-Paving Coming – Bike Corral Removed Temporarily

Along the portion of Larchmont Blvd. that will be re-paved next week, including the now-empty space where the bike corral has been temporarily removed in front of Pickett Fences.

The City of Los Angeles notified local business owners and residents recently that Larchmont Blvd., between Beverly Blvd. and 1st Street, will be resurfaced next Wednesday, May 30, and Thursday, May 31. There will be some street closures associated with the project.

According to a notice from the Bureau of Street Services:

“On Wednesday we will cold mill and place the wearing surface on the east side of the street, and the north bound lanes will be closed to traffic. On Thursday we will repeat the process on the west side, and the south bound lanes will be closed.”

One preparatory step the city has taken for the re-paving is the removal of the bike corral that has been located on Larchmont, in front of 219 N. Larchmont Blvd. (now Pickett Fences), since 2014.  An alarmed reader contacted the Buzz about the missing street feature recently, but Mark Pampanin, communications deputy for City Council District 4, confirmed to the Buzz today that the removal is temporary, and the corral will be re-installed after the paving has been completed.
