6 Miles Of Wilshire Boulevard To Be Closed For Sunday’s ‘CicLAvia’ Event

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Bicyclists and pedestrians will have a portion of Wilshire Boulevard to themselves this Sunday during the city’s seventh CicLAvia event.

Listen to KNX1070 for traffic and weather together on the 5s.

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., CicLAvia Iconic Wilshire Boulevard will close six miles of the famed street to motorized traffic and open it to bikes, pedestrians, roller skates, skateboards, or any other means of wheeled transportation that’s not powered by an engine.

The route will stretch from Fairfax Avenue to Grand Avenue, connecting the Miracle Mile to One Wilshire. The two endpoints will be anchor hubs that feature pedestrian zones with performers, activities sponsored by local museums, food trucks and more. Additional hubs along the route include MacArthur Park, Koreatown, and Mid-Wilshire. Organizers say this route will be the most walkable to date.

Cars in the area will be able to cross the CicLAvia route at La Brea Avenue, Western Avenue, Vermont Avenue and Alvarado Street, founder and executive director Aaron Paley told KNX 1070.
