Westside Cities Want Your Input

February 7, 2012

The Westside Cities Council of Governments (WSCCOG)  has been working on a WSCCOG regional bicycle safety and awareness plan since last year.  An important element of the plan are recommendations to connect the Westside Cities through implementing bicycle infrastructure projects.  The recommended projects or "gap closures" will create a basic regional bicycle infrastructure network to provide north/south and east/west connections. Individual cities within the WSCCOG will then be encouraged to implement projects these projects and close gaps in their route systems.

The following priority gap closures were presented to the WSCCOG Board on January 19, 2012

  • Santa Monica Blvd./Broadway (from La Brea Blvd. to Ocean Ave.)
  • San Vicente Blvd. (from Sunset Blvd. to La Brea Blvd.)
  • Barrington Ave./McLaughlin Ave./Slauson Ave. (from Sunset Blvd. to the Ballona Creek Bike Path)
  • Beverly Dr./Beverwil Dr./Duquesne Ave./Jefferson Blvd./Overland Ave.(from San Vicente to Westfield/Culver City Transit Center)
  • Expo Light Rail Bike Path/Bikeway (from La Brea Blvd. to the western terminus of Phase 2)
