The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has announced that they will work with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to implement three bus priority projects this month.
This work will include phase 1 of the Venice Boulevard Safety and Mobility Project, the initial phase of the La Brea Avenue Bus Priority Lanes Project and the final phase of the Alvarado Street Bus Priority Lanes Project.
Phase 1 of the Venice Boulevard project will include the construction of a dedicated bus-only lane along Venice Blvd between the segments of Inglewood Blvd and Bledsoe Ave in the eastbound direction, and between Tilden Ave and Culver Blvd in both directions.
In addition, LADOT will construct parking-protected and buffered bike lanes, as well as improved crosswalks and left-turn pockets along the route.
Work on this phase of the project will begin in December 2022.
In phase 2 of the project, LADOT and Metro will deliver additional improvements such as bus boarding islands and transit amenities.
The initial phase of the La Brea project will also begin this month to add bus priority lanes on La Brea between Sunset and Olympic Boulevards.
The bus lanes will be active on weekdays between 7-9am and 4-7pm.
The segment between 6th and 8th Streets will be completed after construction on the Purple Line rail extension has concluded, and installation of the second phase of the project, between Olympic and Coliseum Street, will be announced at a later date.
The final phase of the Alvarado St Bus Priority Lanes Project will add bus priority lanes on Alvarado between the 101 freeway and Sunset Boulevard. Thee lanes will be in operation on weekdays from 7-10am and northbound from 3-7pm.
The initial phase of this project, from 7th St to the 101, was completed in June 2021.
