Restriping, left-turn signals, parking restrictions and signal timing are all part of the controversial Olympic-Pico traffic plan (.pdf) that will be subject to three public meetings over the next week.

Between Centinela Avenue and Fairfax Avenue, on Olympic and Pico Boulevards, proposed changes in an initial study would favor travel on westbound Olympic. and eastbound Pico. In essence, the streets would act like one-way thoroughfares, but earlier plans to change the number of westbound and eastbound lanes have been dropped, Ken Husting, a senior transportation engineer for the city, told the LA Times.

Huisting also said "that current parking restrictions are 'a hodge podge' of times and locations." A list of the public meetings for this week are below.
