Del Rey has new lighting over the Centinela Bridge, completing an important safety upgrade to the neighborhood.
On both sides of the Centinela Bridge (over the Ballona Creek), six light poles were installed. The new lights illuminate the sidewalk and roadway, making the area safer for pedestrians, commuters, and bicyclists.
Residents are thrilled with the design of the lighting, which is based on a vintage-looking street light. “It’s like the lighting at Disneyland,” noted one resident. “There’s something magical about it.” Sometimes you do get what you wish for.
