12/30/2020

The Temescal Telegraph Business Improvement District (BID) will be installing 10 more pedestrian lights on the East side of Telegraph Ave, between 51st and Aileen Streets on the sidewalks to enhance safety and to improve the pedestrian experience in Temescal. Construction work began Monday, December 28th, and the lights will be installed over the next month.⁠

🚧The selected locations for the pedestrian lights have been marked in white paint on the sidewalks. During construction, there will be no disruption to vehicle traffic! However, to install the lights the contractor will need to use some parking spots for short amounts of time during Mon-Fri. ⁠

The specific parking spots needed for construction each day will be marked with a no parking sign, and will be unavailable for parking. All other spots on that block will be available for parking!⁠

12/22/2020

Repave Telegraph Update! The contractor started installing cat-tracking on Friday, December 18th to mark the parking types (yellow, green, etc). The City is reviewing and approving the cat tracking this week (Dec 21-24) and the contractor plans to install the paint to mark parking types AND delineate the pedestrian plaza before December 31, 2020. ⁠

Also, the City is working to fill a large cavity discovered under the sidewalk at 5020 Telegraph Ave. They have started investigative work to finalize how they plan to fix it, and have temporarily blocked off the pedestrian access at that location while the sidewalk is opened up. To fix the cavity, the City will create a concrete retaining wall below ground, next to the adjacent building, backfill the cavity with dirt, and then install a new sidewalk section on top. The work is estimated to take 2-3 weeks.⁠

General information

In 2004, the area’s property owners voted overwhelmingly to assess themselves an annual fee that goes towards maintaining and improving the streetscape, supporting businesses, and marketing Telegraph Avenue starting from 40th to 66th Street, including small portions of Shattuck Ave, 51st , and Claremont. We encourage property owners, merchants and residents to join our committees: Design, Economic Development, Promotion, & Security, dedicated to the vibrancy of Temescal and upper Telegraph. Ideas developed in these committees become the action plans for the Board of Directors.
