Once a four lane road, Verdugo Avenue in Burbank now is two lanes with bicycle lanes and a "suicide" lane, which is also referred to as a continuous center lane. Damien Newton at StreetsblogLA takes note: "Until recently, Verdugo Avenue was a four-lane throughway used by commuters as an alternative to busier streets such as Alameda and Magnolia. However, with parks and schools along the road, including John Burroughs High School, the Buena Vista Library, Verdugo Park, and Lincoln Park, the city and residents wanted a change." Now it's changed. Anyone travel this and notice a difference?
