The West LA Neighborhood Council is inviting the public on Tuesday night to discuss a proposal to widen Bundy Drive, a major
motor speedway north-south thoroughfare on the Westside. The widening would involve Bundy between Santa Monica and Wilshire Boulevards, where West LA bleeds into Brentwood. "The proposal is to widen the roadway for additional lanes for cars or for bicycle lanes, and to keep the existing parking. This may require property owners to lose part of their front yards," reads an email from the WLANC to locals. At the meeting, held at the West LA Civic Center, a member of the Department of Transportation will show draft plans for the proposal, which is likely to stir emotions--south of the proposed widening, busy Bundy has entrances and off-ramps to the 10, and an Expo Line station being built at Olympic Boulevard. Meanwhile, the West Neighborhood Bike Ambassadors, an offshoot of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, has started a Change.org petition asking the LADOT to add bike lanes on Bundy all the way from San Vicente Boulevard (Brentwood) to Washington Boulevard (Culver City); 226 people are on board so far.
