The The Community Pedestrian Plan will help the County address corridors in Willowbrook that have concentrations of collisions, identified in red on the map.

These corridors were identified as having had 3 or more fatal or severe injury collisions within a half mile segment between 2013-2017.

These corridors are the focus of the County’s new traffic safety initiative called, Vision Zero, which aims to eliminate fatal injury traffic collisions on County roadways by 2035.

These corridors are part of the 3.8% of County maintained roadways where 50% of all fatal and severe injury collisions have occurred.

By working with community to understand concerns and opportunities for walkability enhancements the Pedestrian Plans will help the County achieve the Vision Zero goal.


Community Outreach

The Department of Public Health has partnered with Los Angeles Walks (LA Walks), a pedestrian advocacy organization, to lead the community outreach and engagement efforts in the Willowbrook community.

LA Walks, along with County partners, will be leading workshops, mapping activities, and listening sessions to hear from residents, local business leaders, and other stakeholders on the strategies that they want to see implemented for improving walkability in the community.

Workshops and other activities will be virtual throughout 2021 and will be bilingual. Youth, families, seniors, and anyone interested in providing ideas or learning about pedestrian planning is highly encouraged to participate.
