Colored Curb Zones

Colored Curb Zones

Colored curb zones are painted to indicate parking prohibitions or restrictions. Additional regulations may be posted on signs and apply regardless of curb color.  Red, White and Blue curb regulations are in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week unless otherwise indicated by a sign. Residents may request various colored curb zones in their neighborhood through the MyLADOT Service Request Portal.

Blue Curbs (Accessible Parking Zones)

  • On January 24, 2017, the Los Angeles City Council adopted the Phase 1 Program for Accessible Parking Zone's (APZ's).   The Phase 1 Program generally restricts the placement of APZ’s to corner locations to serve the entire block. Any necessary improvements to the selected corner will be included in the City’s Sidewalk Repair Program for design and construction.  City Departments involved in this program will report back to the City Council in six months on Phase 1 regarding eligibility, feasibility, prioritization and construction costs for APZ's.
