West Hollywood's Big La Brea Makeover Starts Next Month

New, 36 comments

West Hollywood is set to begin work in June to enhance increasingly pedestrian-friendly La Brea Avenue, a tipster informs us. The city council already approved the work in March--it'll include wider sidewalks, 40 new street trees, and 21 new pedestrian-level blue street lamps akin to those on Santa Monica Boulevard. While bike lanes will not be part of the project, which spans Fountain to Romaine, three "median islands have been designed to accommodate unprotected sharrows (share the road) bike lanes in the future," according to Patch. Meanwhile, the city's request for proposals for the project appears to indicate a wholly separate bike lane could be added to the street in the future. The La Brea upgrade will cost a touch under $1.5 million, with Metro paying $862,000 and WeHo pitching in $619,000.
