LADOT Moving Los Angeles Forward

Make Your Voice Heard With LADOT Safety Project Surveys

LADOT is on the road to building improved streets in Los Angeles and needs your assistance to identify priorities to help achieve this goal. To help inform this process, LADOT seeks to gather as much feedback as possible from people who use our city’s street network in order to determine which streets are most in need of improvement. 

Below, you will find information on several of our recent and ongoing safety projects. LADOT requests that all interested parties please visit the project survey links included in the project descriptions. Your responses will help shape the future of our city's streets and the safety of those who travel on them.

Adams Boulevard Safety Project

LADOT is presently seeking community feedback on an ambitious redesign of Adams Boulevard that will improve safety for all forms of transportation. Over the last ten years, nine people have been killed on Adams between Fairfax Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard, including six pedestrians — more than almost any other street in Los Angeles. The proposal includes a lane reconfiguration, bike lanes, new crossing opportunities, and signal upgrades. The final details of the project will be guided by community input based on surveys. Stakeholders who regularly use Adams Blvd are encouraged to participate in the survey and learn about the proposed project by visiting ladot.lacity.org/adams.

Avenue 50 and Meridian Street Improvements

LADOT is getting to work on improvements for the intersection of Avenue 50 and Meridian Street in Highland park and needs your feedback to help make this project a success. 

The intersection improvements at Avenue 50 and Meridian Street are designed to reduce speeding and cut-through traffic within the neighborhood while contributing to a more comfortable and convenient experience for people walking and biking. Enhancing these local streets with a neighborhood traffic circle and other complementary features will improve safety for biking and walking and will enhance access to multiple community destinations, including Occidental College, several other schools and parks, the Metro L (Gold) Line station in Highland Park, and commercial activity along York Boulevard. Meridian Street in particular offers a comfortable east-west connection through the neighborhood as an alternative to the busier York Boulevard.

LADOT asks that all interested parties please fill out and submit the department’s survey for the Avenue 50 and Meridian Street project by clicking here

Reseda Boulevard Complete Streets Project

As part of the Complete Streets Program, the city is reconstructing Reseda Boulevard to improve safety and accessibility for all. This multi-agency project is one of the first of its kind, and will transform Reseda by investing $19.5 million into the local community. The project will improve the speed and efficiency of buses along the Reseda Boulevard corridor and will and make the street more beautiful, green, and comfortable for residents and businesses. Project features include improvements to sidewalks, crosswalks, lighting, traffic signals, and a dedicated space for people riding bicycles.

This project envisions a hub for a network of local streets that will allow safe connections to popular corridors such as Avalon Boulevard.
