Permanent Slow Streets Installations On The Way

Permanent Slow Streets Installations On The Way

We’re getting to work on making permanent upgrades to some slow streets networks. The program began during the pandemic to provide additional space for recreation within neighborhoods. While the original Slow Streets program used temporary materials, we are now working on making improvements permanent to calm traffic on neighborhood streets making it safer for residents to walk and bike. Over the weekend installation began in neighborhoods in Koreatown and Hollywood and more installations are on the way.

Treatments along Slow Streets include durable signage and bollards as well as features like traffic circles, which helps reduce speeds and the volume of traffic traveling in the neighborhood, painted medians, and gateway treatments that signal to drivers the transition to slower speeds and to be aware of other users of the roadway.

 

John Leichty Middle School Celebrates Bike To School Day with Safe Routes to School LA

John Leichty Middle School Celebrates Bike To School Day with Safe Routes to School LA

In honor of National Bike Month, LADOT's Safe Routes to School helped sponsor John Leichty Middle School students participating in Bike To School Day. On Friday students, parents, school staff and volunteers did a one-mile ride that started and ended at the school. Students who completed the bicycle safety instruction were provided with bikes by LAUSD.

Bike To School Day is a day to celebrate the normalcy of biking to school and a chance for students to build their traffic safety awareness. This is also an excellent opportunity for LAUSD to give middle school students a chance to put what they learn into practice on our neighborhood school streets.

Events like these are led by our Safe Routes To School program which aims to bring safety improvements and safety education to school neighborhoods and build a culture that prioritizes safety. The program recently received an award from the APA Los Angeles Section in neighborhood planning.
