LOS ANGELES, California – Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC), in tandem with Koreatown Immigrant Workers’ Alliance (KIWA) and Korean Resource Center (KRC) will hold a press conference on June 16th to discuss the upcoming implementation of the 7th Street Bike Lane the first bike lane to be implemented from the greater City of Los Angeles Bike Plan.
“We are really excited about the 7th Street bike lane project. It’ll help us share the road with bicycle riders and make the streets and sidewalks safer for everybody in Koreatown—especially children and families who rely on bikes to get around. It will also encourage bike use to help our environment and make our neighborhood cleaner for the future,” said Jang Woo Nam, KIWA organizer.
“We think this bike lane, which LACBC has advocated for two years to bring to Koreatown, will meaningfully boost the many Korean owned businesses along the corridor,” said Jennifer Klausner, LACBC Executive Director.
