The Metro Board of Directors unanimously voted today to support LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and the vocal condominium residents and will remove a contested one-mile segment of the proposed Wilshire rush hour bus-only lanes from the project, reports Streetsblog Los Angeles.During the over one hour period of public testimony, the Board heard largely arguments in favor of the full project, including the segment between Comstock and Selby to which local residents raised objections. "Roughly 10-15% of those testifying were Westside residents opposed to the project," whereas the remainder of the speakers, "representing environmental groups, urban planners, bike riders, the Bus Riders Union, and residents of West L.A." addressed the benefits of the plan.
