Los Angeles Hosts The IX Summit Of The Americas: Traffic and Transit Impacts

This week Los Angeles welcomed the IX Summit of the Americas to Los Angeles. From June 6-10 world leaders will gather to focus on shared goals for the future. This is only the second time the United States has hosted since 1994 when the inaugural summit was held in Miami.

As Heads-of-State and diplomats from across the Western Hemisphere gather together, Angelenos should prepare for some traffic impacts including road closures and detours. It is advised that you avoid the Downtown Los Angeles area as traffic will likely be impacted there the most. The areas between the 10 and 101 freeways and east of the 110 should be avoided whenever possible as well as various access points to Downtown such as:

  • Connector ramps from the east and westbound 10 Freeway to the 110 Freeway North
  • The 110 Freeway northbound exits into Downtown LA, to include Pico Boulevard, 9th Street, 6th Street, 4th Street, and 3rd Street
  • The 110 Freeway southbound exits for 6th Street and Wilshire Boulevard
  • Figueroa Street, north and southbound traffic, between Washington Boulevard and 3rd Street.

Separately, on Thursday, June 9, on Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1) — from Coastline Drive to the Santa Monica tunnel (McClure Tunnel) — one southbound traffic lane will be dedicated to emergency vehicles from noon to 10 pm. During this time all non-emergency vehicles will be blocked from turning left onto or off of the southbound Pacific Coast Highway from Coastline Drive to the Santa Monica Tunnel. Northbound right turns and through traffic on PCH will be allowed.

There are no canceled or suspended transit routes during Summit week however LADOT does anticipate detoured DASH routes.

You can find more details on commuting during the Summit on our website and follow us for more up-to-date maps and closures.

 

New Back-In Angle Parking Installed On Neptune Ave

New Back-In Angle Parking Installed On Neptune Ave

LADOT added new street safety features on Neptune Ave between Anaheim St to F St and between F St to C St. Crews were out installing new back-in angle parking as well as traffic circles last week that will help increases parking capacity on Neptune. Back-in angle parking also helps to provide better visibility for drivers pulling out of the parking space to have a clear view of oncoming vehicles and cyclists. The new design alos physically narrows Neptune to help slow vehicles' speed.

Last week, with the help of CD15 staff we were able to hit the streets of the neighborhood to pass out flyers to educate residents about the new parking and help facilitate usage. Educational flyers were also posted throughout the neighborhood to inform them about the new safety feature. Almost all of the residents that we talked to reported really liking the increase in parking capacity and the new traffic circles

 

Street Safety Celebration For Western Ave.

Street Safety Celebration For Western Ave.

Over the weekend we joined Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson and project leaders and over 200 participants in celebrating the completion of the design phase of improvements coming to Western Ave. Participants were able to enjoy free lunch, raffles, bike safety training, and other entertainment activities. People also had the opportunity to speak to the councilmember and leaders about the details of the Western Ave. project and the incoming improvements.

In 2017 LADOT identified Western Ave from Washington Blvd to Century Blvd as a Vision Zero Priority Corridor due to a high incidence of severe and fatal collisions. The new design improves traffic safety for all uses particularly people biking, walking, and those who use transit, as well as improve access to community destinations like schools and parks.
