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  – IN PROGRESS new signal timing coming for pedestrian only and driver only intervals. NEEDED pedestrian friendly geometric redesign needed to increase space and safety for pedestrians, similar to what was done at GPB & Landa (CD13, SLNC)

Fountain & Talmage – IN PROGRESSAPPROVED, BUT WAITING FOR PAINT crosswalks needed north along Fountain (CD4, LFNC) *dozens of students cross these intersections every morning on their way to school, many coming from transit stations

Fountain & Bates – SUCCESS!! north side crosswalk is painted!!! IN PROGRESS APPROVED, BUT WAITING FOR PAINTsouth side crosswalk work order is in. IN PROGRESS study for marked/controlled crossing across Fountain is in progress!!! (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.

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)
