The “Main Street Road Diet“, which will change Main Street from Windward Circle to Rose from a five lane street into a three lane street with a center turn lane and bicycle lanes on each side should be completed by this weekend.
The Venice Neighborhood Council voted in favor of the LADOT’s proposed new road layout last September and the street restriping began last week.
“This road diet will meet the needs of the increasing number of bike commuters on the Westside,” said Councilman Bill Rosendahl. “The new and improved Main Street in Venice will create a safer environment for all modes of transportation.”
Rosendahl also says the road diet will enhance the pedestrian experience, reduce traffic conflicts, and eliminate the bottleneck at the Santa Monica border.
