HIGHLAND PARK — A new traffic signal at York Boulevard and Avenue 63 was welcomed this morning by a group of residents and city officials. The signal, one block of east of Figueroa near the new Starbucks and Highland Park senior center, was installed following several collisions, according to Councilman Jose Huizar, who spoke at this morning’s dedication.
Neighborhood groups, including the Garvanza Improvement Assn., have been lobbying for sometime to get a new signal installed. “This is another one the community has been requesting for decades that we were able to resolve,” according to a posting on the Council District 14 Facebook page. Please know that we’re not finished – there are more coming in all areas of Council District 14.”
