Try out a DASH of Silver Lake

Proposed Silver Lake DASH Route
Originally uploaded by CD-13
On Saturday, September 29th, Silver Lake will host the first trial run of the proposed DASH line running through the neighborhood. Coordinated with the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council elections and the breaking of ground for the Silver Lake Library (a LEED Gold structure), the trial run of the DASH route will give Silver Lake residents a glimpse of what a neighborhood connector could do.

Survey input and on-the-ground interviews helped to shape the proposed route, which runs north from near the 101 along Silver Lake Blvd., around the reservoir and back down Hyperion connecting shopping areas, residential areas, and parks in the community. Can a DASH line connect our neighborhoods to major transportation corridors and get Silver Lake out of its cars? We'll start to find out later this month. Save the date to jump on board!
