Back in January, then Councilmember (and now Vice Mayor) Jeff Cooper revealed that through his efforts with the City’s Public Works Department, Culver City would soon install its first ever bicycle corral.
It’s taken just over six months, but the corral is finally here. It made its quiet debut July 17, outside the on Washington Boulevard.
The corral was created by converting one car parking space on Washington Boulevard between Madison Avenue and Jean Place into a dedicated area for bike parking and can hold 10 bicycles.
According to City staff, the sight distance for cars heading south on Jean Place at Washington Boulevard has now improved with the removal of the parking space and the installation of the corral.
Culver City Councilmember Meghan Sahli-Wells took a photograph of her bicycle as she placed it in the corral last Friday and tweeted:
First time using #CulverCity's 1st #bike corral in front of my favorite coffee place! Double yay.
