Why You Won't Be Able To Drive On Robertson In WeHo All Weekend
West Hollywood is the latest local city to rethink public space by closing a street to cars to create more space for walking and biking (and likely outdoor dining).
The city council voted unanimously to launch a limited pilot program on Robertson Boulevard, creating a car-free zone on weekends from Santa Monica Boulevard to El Tovar Place, just north of Melrose Avenue. The street will be pedestrian-only from 6 p.m. Saturdays to 2 a.m. Mondays.
The pilot is slated to launch in mid-April and run for three months. City staff will evaluate the program, so the council can decide whether to continue it and potentially expand the vehicle ban to include Friday nights.
