Frogtown Transportation Leaps Forward Down the L.A. River


September 16, 2014 – Perhaps the most striking development to the increased artistic and community programming at this past Saturday's 9th annual Frogtown Artwalk, was the conscious attempt to address transportation issues that will arise as the L.A. River's revitalization continues to attract more and more Angelenos to the riverfront neighborhoods. Elysian Valley already faces parking issues because of its narrow streets and riverfront industrial section that brings large commercial vehicles through the neighborhood on a daily basis. These factors, combined with the collective impact of increased cars, bicyclists, skate boarders, kayakers, and pedestrians that use the area's prime river access points, have created valid concerns amongst residents and businesses who fear the looming congestion that may result from the River's increased popularity.
