Actions to provide congestion relief along Olympic Boulevard and Pico Boulevard between Centinela Avenue and Fairfax Avenue primarily in the Wilshire and West Los Angeles planning areas of the City of Los Angeles. The proposed project would include two major elements:
- Restriping the existing roadways without widening and changing restrictions against curb-side parking during peak traffic periods to provide continuous curb lanes on both sides of Olympic Boulevard and Pico Boulevard between Centinela Avenue and Fairfax Avenue during peak periods. Parking restrictions would not be changed at the following locations: north side of Olympic Boulevard between Centinela Avenue and Bundy Drive, south side of Olympic Boulevard between Centinela Avenue and Sawtelle Boulevard, and north side of Pico Boulevard between Centinela Avenue and Gateway Boulevard.
- Modifying existing traffic signal timing to favor westbound travel on Olympic Boulevard and eastbound travel on Pico Boulevard. In addition, left-turn signals would be added or removed to help accomplish the directional signal operation on Olympic and Pico boulevards, while still allowing all current left-turns at signalized intersections. New left-turn signals will be added at selected north-south arterials to facilitate cross-over movements between Olympic Boulevard and Pico Boulevard.
This project may affect portions of the City of Beverly Hills. No action will be taken in the City of Beverly Hills without approval from that city.
Work on this project has been suspended indefinitely.
