More Bike Lane Love for the Valley

(ed. note: Seeing as how this is my first post, I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is JoJo Pewsawang and I am an Urban Planning graduate student from the USC School of Policy Planning and Development. I am a native Angeleno, who didn’t realize the full potential of bicycling until seeing it in action during my time as an undergrad at UC Davis. As the LADOT Bike Program’s team pushes ahead on a number of projects, I look forward to keeping everyone up to date on  our efforts to make Los Angeles a better place to ride a bike.

Woodman Avenue Bike Lane

Towards the end of February, LADOT installed one mile of new bike lanes on Woodman Ave. between Oxnard and Vanowen. The new facility connects with an existing bike lane that runs from Burbank to the Orange Line Busway, creating a continuous 1.5 mile bike lane for the east Valley. Check out the updated bike lane project page and our projects google map to see a complete list of recently completed and soon-to-be completed bicycling facilities.

The new Woodman bike lane also connects with the existing Orange Line bike path – a class one bicycling facility – and Kittridge St – a comfortable street for biking according to the Los Angeles Bikeway Guide: Valley edition (available for free at neighborhood bike shops, various City Council field offices , and at Los Angeles Public Library branches).
