This Year 2 list contains the next 40 miles of bicycle lanes prioritized for installation.  Each project is part of an ongoing effort to strategically close gaps in our bikeway network by connecting new infrastructure to existing bicycle paths, lanes and routes in Los Angeles.  A number of these projects are funded through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).

Moving forward, LADOT will begin traffic and safety assessments for the Year 2 projects. Results from this analysis will be made available in a public report.  Upon completion of Traffic and Safety Assessments, LADOT and the Department of City Planning will hold a series of public hearings to disclose the analysis and give interested groups an opportunity to express their support or concern over the proposed bicycle lanes.

    WOW. Parthenia as the main east-west through the middle of the Valley? Awesome!!! I’m really hoping this happens. Right now, I’m on Chase most the time to go east-west. I’m guessing Roscoe and Sherman Way presented issues? I always thought Sherman Way was too far south anyway. Roscoe has lost of residential though, I’m surprised they wouldn’t want the extra parking. Also, Woodman is a good gap fill. It reached all the way north and south already. And without the bike lane there, it gets very hairy. Excellent overall plans. 🙂

      I’m really excited about this too! I take Parthenia during the week to get to the train station. Having a bike lane there is going to be fantastic.

    I love this list! One suggestion: in dealing with the complicated 6-way intersection of Hollywood/Sunset/Virgil/Hillhurst (4 legs of which are getting lanes in this plan), some consideration really should be given to bike boxes. They’d be particularly useful on Virgil and on Hillhurst, since those are places where people might be coming from one bike lane and aiming to do a left turn to get onto the bike lanes on Hollywood or on Sunset. Given the length of the red light at this intersection, people would have plenty of time to get from the bike lane over to the left in a box, even if they’re not comfortable biking in the left lane for the turn.

    (I’m still hoping for a solution where that diagonal block of Hollywood Blvd is turned into a combination of parks and parking lots, to greatly simplify the traffic flow at this intersection and at Vermont/Hollywood/Prospect.)

      Therefore we should do what exactly? Encouraging biking and transit use are the only way things are not going to get worse in the gridlock department. Hollywood is backed up crazy already. This is going to make it better, because now you don’t have to worry about what lane the bike will be in.
