From the Reporter
What’s New
Improved curb ramps on the western perimeter of Balboa Park now make it easier for disabled pedestrians to get in and out of the park along busy Sixth Avenue.
The Problem
The city installed the upgraded ramps to comply with disability laws. But it does not plan to install other improvements, like stop lights or crosswalks, that would actually make them safer to use.
What Advocates Want
Pedestrian advocates want the city to do more to improve pedestrian safety on Sixth Avenue along Balboa Park, which has only four crosswalks across a span of 16 city blocks.
