Wilshire Bus Lane's Slow Road

New, 4 comments

Streetsblog reports on an October 9 memo from the LA Dept. of Transportation to the City Council that estimates that the Wilshire bus lane will be finished in June 2015. Inquiring after why the project is going to take so long, Streetsblog got this response from LADOT's director of public information: "The schedule for the Wilshire bus lane project involves multiple City departments that work on the design, construction of the street widening, pavement reconstruction, engineering surveys, analysis and traffic management plan. None of which can be completed in a short period of time. That said, LADOT is working with our partners to expedite this project and will continue to push ahead to make Wilshire bus lanes a reality as soon as possible." [Streetsblog, previously]
