Los Angeles Seeks Funding Solutions For Road, Sidewalk Repairs Ahead Of 2028 Olympics

The L.A. City Council Wednesday unanimously approved a motion to actively explore ways to fund major repair work in time for the 2028 Summer Olympics.

The motion, which was proposed back in February 2018 by Councilmember Joe Buscaino and former councilmember Mitch Englander, directs L.A.’s Chief Legislative Analyst and City Administrative Officer to report back with options for how to fund “crucial street and sidewalk infrastructure improvements.”

The motion cites recent statistics which found that nearly 40 percent of L.A.’s streets have a D or F rating, while 8,700 miles of streets need repairs.
