planners at the Los Angeles Department of Transportation
work with the Department
of City Planning to develop traffic projections
for the City of Los Angeles. To forecast these projections,
the two departments identify what conditions will affect
traffic in the future and how traffic amounts and patterns
LADOT transportation planners then
use the traffic projections to make recommendations
to 35 Community
Plans administered by the Department of City Planning.
The Department of Transportation recommendations sometimes
influence the Department of City Planning to impose
zoning changes to those plans.
