Wilshire corridor

Making Wilshire nice for Ciclavia

Preparations for Sunday's Ciclavia are visible everywhere along the route between Downtown's Grand Avenue and Fairfax Avenue at the west end of the Miracle Mile district. On Saturday afternoon, a city crew filled a large pothole at Wilshire and Mariposa Avenue in the Wilshire Center stretch of Koreatown. Below: street barriers stacked up at La Brea and a warning sign for occupants of the buildings near LaFayette Park.

The Ciclavia route will be closed to vehicles from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. A little later, I'll be posting an opinionated guide to some hidden things to see along the route.
