West Hollywood City Council Moves To Expand Bike Lanes On Fountain, Santa Monica Boulevard



The West Hollywood City Council voted to move forward with a protected bike lane project on Fountain Avenue, along with bike lanes on Santa Monica Boulevard.

“Bike lanes and better modes of transit and infrastructure are critical methods for improving the walks of life of residents, businesses and people who visit here,” Mayor Pro Tempore John Erickson said. “Of course, any type of change is always difficult. But what I’ve seen other cities do and where they fail is they don’t invest the time in the community outreach. We have done that. We have surveyed our residents along that area and over 66% of them supported protected bike lanes on Fountain Avenue.”
