What: East Los Angeles residents join Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria

Molina in dedicating East L.A.’s newest Metro bus layover facility. The

improvement project is now a quaint and small park-like setting with public

art where bus commuters can comfortably rest on a hot summer or cold

winter day while waiting for the bus. Staging areas, commuter seating, and

operator restroom facilities highlight the bus layover site.

Surrounding to the Bus layover facility is a concrete block fence that features

a community painted mural of leaves found in East L.A. neighborhoods.

Others joining Molina at the dedication include; officials from County of Los

Angeles Department of Public works, Metro, the LA County Art Commission

and members of the community.

Where: 425N Rowan Ave, Los Angeles, CA (north of E. Cesar Chavez Rd.)

Parking located at Iglesia Pan Americana Cuadrangular

innovated and responsible community development.
