Last year, a team from Eagle Rock High School, the Yosemite Recreation Center and Occidental College asked for community input on how to improve Yosemite Drive. The team received over 220 responses from students, parents, and residents, many expressing concerns about speeding vehicles and difficulty crossing the street, as well as interest in using artwork to help improve traffic safety. After gathering further input from the community on artwork options, the project team partnered with LADOT and local artist Andrew Armstrong to develop a safety redesign of the intersection of Yosemite Drive and La Roda Street featuring murals designed to encourage safe travel speeds and improve pedestrian crossings, while keeping access for parking, pick-up and drop-off, and other neighborhood needs.

This project was installed last month thanks to funding from Occidental and the generous assistance of volunteers from the high school and college. The artwork itself was designed to reflect the neighborhood, featuring the high school’s eagle mascot, Occidental College tiger stripes, and native poppy flowers.

Now the project team would like to your feedback on the project as they consider additional improvements to Yosemite and future arts-driven street designs elsewhere in Los Angeles.
