You may have noticed today that street crews from the L.A. Bureau Of Street Services showed up this morning to begin repairing the sidewalks along Washington Blvd. in Wellington Square, between Wellington Rd. and Victoria Ave. This was a welcome to sight to anyone who has walked along that stretch of the sidewalk recently – the pavement was in serious need of repair due to numerous cracks and damage from the roots of large pine trees.And here’s even more good news… none of the historic pine trees in that area along Washington Blvd. will be harmed or removed during this sidewalk repair process thanks in large part to the hard work of several of the residents of Wellington Square and the diligence of Herb Wesson and his CD-10 staff. Special thanks to Sylvia Lacy and John Harmon from CD-10 for working with the residents to ensure that the work could be accomplished and completed without disturbing these majestic trees. They met with officials from the Bureau of Street Services to work out a plan for repair that would especially protect the trees. The work is estimated to take several weeks to finish. During this time, you will be unable to walk on the sidewalk on the south side of Washington Blvd. in that section, so please plan an alternate walking path on the north side of the street.
