City Releases Draft Maps for Bicycle Plan
LA's Department of Transportation is not known for its willingness to communicate with the public at large. It was only after a couple City Councilmember got aggressive this week with bikeways staff that yesterday, draft maps of the LA Bicycle Plan were released. You can download them here and then submit comments via an online form. They are not exactly thrilling maps to ogle over, but it's worth a look to check our your neighborhood and commuting routes. For example, in Sherman Oaks we noticed that a bike lane was deleted from Woodman Ave between Ventura and the 101 Freeway, even though maps published within the past few years show that one exists currently (it never did). A proposed bike lane for Fulton Ave. to Valley College has also disappeared. What's going on in your neighborhood?
