Around Beckford

rearview of the corner of beckford st. & los alimos

There's been lots of construction going on both on campus and around campus. We'll be posting pics of some of the work going on.

The pic above shows some of the work being done on the northeast corner of Beckford and Los Alimos. The corners are being redone so that they may be compliant with current accessibility codes. Of course, this would have been really helpful 18 years ago (as well as ten years ago) when I was pushing a baby stroller around the neighborhood, but that's neither here nor there. I'm glad to see them there now.

Here is a picture of the (almost) finished corner. I think there's a bumpy yellow plate that needs to be installed at the edge of the corner. Don't know if you can make it out.... but the street has also been torn up and reduced to loose gravel. Hopefully, it will happen before school starts. But then, that would make too much sense, wouldn't it? :)

More pics coming soon!

That would make as much sense as them doing street resurfacing during the break as opposed to the middle of the school year. We are talking about City of LA, right? :)
