Hyperion & Landa  SUCCESS!! crosswalk painted across Hyperion at Landa (CD13/CD4, SLNC)

Griffith Park Blvd & Landa  SUCCESS!!  geometric redesign of intersection, added curb extensions, removal of channelized right turn, reduced vehicle pedestrian conflicts at every crossing

Griffith Park Blvd bike lanes SUCCESS!! mostly repainted, largely patched! NEEDED more patching, crack filling, and resurfacing to make a family friendly and safe riding surface — recommended use of Endurablend, an LADOT approved product currently in use at the crossing in front of Grand Market DTLA

Fountain & Myra  – SUCCESS!! new signal timing coming for PEDESTRIAN ONLY and DRIVER ONLY intervals. SUCCESS!! bulb out and space for pedestrians on north side of intersection EXTENDED with delineators NEEDED pedestrian friendly geometric redesign on south side of intersection to increase space and safety for pedestrians, similar to what was done at GPB & Landa (CD13, SLNC) NEEDED would be nice to add trees in pots to this newly created street level pedestrian zone

Fountain & Talmage – SUCCESS!! crosswalks along north along Fountain (CD4, LFNC)

Fountain & Bates – SUCCESS!! north side crosswalk is painted!!! SUCCESS!! south side crosswalk along Fountain!!! (CD13, SLNC)

Fountain – NEEDED, slower speeds on Fountain and School Zones expanded to 1,000 ft from the school. Fountain is along the High Injury Network, and engineering for speed reduction will improve safety for our students. LAUSD OEHS has put in the request. IN DISCUSSIONS WITH LADOT as to how to alert drivers that they are entering a school zone.

Fountain & Effie  SUCCESS!! crosswalks are in!!!! (CD4, LFNC) *needs geometric redesign needed to slow speeds and improve safety

Bates & Effie – NEEDED, waiting on counts, 4 crosswalks needed (CD13, SLNC)

Myra & Effie – NEEDED, waiting on counts, 4 crosswalks needed (CD13, SLNC) *there were two crashes while we were walking by this intersection last May during our walk audit. Many students walk through this area every morning.

Manzanita & Effie – NEEDED, waiting on counts, 4 crosswalks needed  (CD13, SLNC)

Sanborn & Effie – NEEDED, waiting on counts,crosswalks needed  (CD13, SLNC), LABSS also needs to add access ramp on the SE corner

Griffith Park Blvd & Effie NEEDED, waiting on counts, crosswalks needed  (CD13, SLNC), LABSS needs to add access ramps on the NE corner, NW corner, SW corner

Sunset Blvd & Bates – DISPUTED controlled crossing requested at Bates across Sunset Blvd. Current study shows lack of pedestrian demand doesn’t warrant a controlled crossing. Request out for LADOT to consider vulnerable population of seniors and middle schoolers, and lack of safe crossing in this popular retail area. NEEDED this area along Sunset Blvd designated as a Pedestrian Oriented Corridor.

Sunset Drive & Bates — SUCCESS!! crosswalk was painted across the south side of Bates. NEEDED For across Sunset Drive, counts are in, but PENDING APPROVAL due to lack of curb ramps more crosswalks at this intersection. Also need curb ramps from LABSS (CD4, LFNC)
