Extreme Makeover Olvera Edition
We have yet to find the details on the LA City Council website but according to ABC 7, Olvera Street has been granted up to 12 million dollars for improvements. Among the work that is likely to be done includes construction of the transportation museum, new restrooms and infrastructure repairs (sewers, electrical and streets). The on-going preservation of many of the murals (several of which are quite old now) will also continue.
Just a couple weeks ago, LA City Beat offered suggestions for taking in Olvera Street as a local day-trip.
Update: Oops! And so did we! How easily we forget.
