New Bus Bench and Trash Can on Centinela and Washington
Finally! Culver City has installed a new bus bench and trash can on the northeast corner of Washington Blvd and Centinela Ave. I've been waiting for this for years now. I stand on that corner every morning to catch the #14 Santa Monica Blue Bus northbound which is how I commute to work.
It is so great to have a place to sit while I wait for the bus. It is also great that people can now throw their trash in the can instead of on the sidewalk. I do wish, though, that they also could have installed a roof/overhang (I don't know the proper name for these things) above the bench so that people can sit there without getting drenched when it is raining. Luckily it doesn't rain all that much in LA.
I'm really looking forward to the redevelopment that is supposedly coming soon at this intersection. The plans are highlighted in this edition of the Culver West Neighborhood Association's newsletter.
