It’s the sound of squealing. It could be the surprised tires squeaking to a halt at the new stop sign at Sawtelle and Hayter, or it could just be me, making delighted noises at the appearance of something I’ve wanted for about a decade.
The crosswalk – thank you neighbors, thank you city council, thank you public works department – will make it a lot easier for people in the eastern slice of Sunkist Park to be able to be friends with their neighbors on the other side of Sawtelle, and most importantly, will make it a lot easier for children to walk to school.
The last word from Mayor Weissman was January. Once again, our wonderful folks at City Hall made it happen ahead of schedule.
Now, slow yourself down coming over that bridge and be ready to hit the brakes; children are walking.
