On Monday, a new pedestrian crosswalk with a flashing overhead yellow light will be debuted on Sunset Boulevard at Portia Street. In a recent citywide study to find where higher than average pedestrian accidents occur, this one was identified and pushed for by the city's volunteer citizen Pedestrian Advisory Committee. The crosswalk is currently installed, but the flashing lights will be turned on Monday morning when Councilman Eric Garcetti and others flip the switch.
