The Temescal Telegraph BID is planning to create a pedestrian plaza bounded by the 46th St, Shattuck Ave, Telegraph Ave and 45th St. The planned reconfiguration of this intersection would create a pedestrian plaza from the existing public sidewalk surrounding the Kasper’s building at 4521 Telegraph Ave, and expanding the area into a public plaza to include Shattuck Ave between 46th and 45th Streets, as well as 45th St between Telegraph and Shattuck Avenues. The purpose of this pedestrian plaza is to significantly improve traffic, bike and pedestrian safety, and create a welcoming public gathering place for the Temescal community.
