Safety Improved on Tesla Avenue
Updated: Nov 20, 2021
Thanks to the recent improvements on Tesla Avenue, a popular portion of the Silver Lake Reservoirs’ walking path is now safer for pedestrians. The Streets LA Resurfacing Division upgrade includes clear markings alerting drivers to stop signs on Tesla, which is a narrow and dangerous stretch of the walking path shared with vehicles. Although Tesla Avenue is a one-way street westbound from Armstrong Avenue to West Silver Lake Drive — and there is a sidewalk — it continues to be a cut-through street for motorists, who often exceed speed limits on a small road crowded with joggers and walkers. In 2012, a pedestrian was struck by a car near Tesla and West Silver Lake Drive, prompting a sidewalk installation.
