CicLAvia Traffic Alert: 4-21-13

From Councilman Rosendahl:

Bill Rosendahl

Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl would like to alert his constituents to the road restrictions for vehicular traffic along Venice Blvd as the longest CicLAvia route comes to the Westside on Sunday.

CicLAvia to the Sea will transform most of Venice Blvd into a car-free, linear park for strolling, biking, and exploring the city from a new perspective. The public event is open to all, free of charge. The event will take place Sunday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and has the distinction of being the longest CicLAvia route to date, covering 17 miles of city streets from El Pueblo to Windward Plaza.

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation will have the route completely secured by 9:30 a.m. and completely open by 5:00 p.m.

While thousands of people will be utilizing some form of active transportation, there will be limited vehicular access on Venice Blvd for eastbound traffic as well as several dedicated north-south access points at various points along the route.

VEHICULAR ACCESS ON VENICE BOULEVARD

Eastbound lanes of Venice Blvd. from Pacific Ave. to Crenshaw Blvd., will remain open to vehicular traffic although motorists may encounter flashing red lights at every intersection in addition to the regular light cycles at the dedicated north-south crossing points. As an alternative to eastbound Venice Blvd., please consider using Washington Blvd to the south or Ocean Park/Pico Blvd to the north

NORTH-SOUTH ACCESS POINTS ALONG VENICE BLVD

Those needing to cross Venice Blvd to points north or south of the route will have dedicated access points at several locations, including:

Pacific Ave.

Abbott Kinney Blvd.

Lincoln Blvd.

Beethoven St.

Centinela Ave.

Sawtelle Blvd.

Sepulveda Blvd.

Overland Ave.

More information, including a route map marked with dedicated north-south crossings, can be found the CicLAvia website. Rosendahl will attend the event and be available to constituents and the press at the Mar Vista Farmer’s Market from noon to 1 p.m.
