Message from LADOT General Manager Laura Rubio-Cornejo

Last weekend, we wrapped up the final Play Streets event of the year in North Hollywood! These events truly embody LADOT's commitment to empower communities, engage residents, and connect neighbors by re-imagining what our City streets can be.

Play Streets is a community-driven program that gives residents the opportunity to transform their streets into a place of joy and gathering. LADOT staff provide the street closures and a "Box of Play", but our local "play experts" -- the neighborhood children and families -- are free to imagine the street of their dreams. This year, we successfully staged six separate Play Streets events with partners finding unique and surprising ways to turn their streets into places of play!  It's inspiring to witness the power of community-driven creativity.

Thanks to everyone who came out and played with us in 2023!

New Mobile Payment Option for Parking Coming to the Arts District

Starting December 15, 2023, LADOT will roll out new on-street paid parking in the Arts District. This initiative aims to encourage vehicle turnover and increase the availability of parking spaces in response to requests from local businesses.

Around 250 new metered spaces have been added between Alameda and Santa Fe from 1st Street to 4th Street. Drivers can choose the convenience of contactless payment via mobile app, or will have the option to use cash or credit cards at a nearby touch screen Pay Station.

Play Streets Celebrates Last Event of the Year in North Hollywood

Over the weekend, North Hollywood experienced the lively transformation of Ethel Ave, between Hartland and Hart, as part of LADOT's Play Streets program. Launched in 2015, the Play Streets program empowers residents and community groups to close neighborhood streets to traffic and open them for a day of fun and play for all ages. These events serve as a testament to the endless possibilities of our City streets as well as providing much-needed park space for Angelenos.

CD10 Empowers Community Through Resource Fair and Safety Initiative

Last week, LADOT was proud to participate in a Community Resource Fair at Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. Middle School in CD 10. LADOT staff were on hand to discuss transportation needs with constituents as well as distribute information on accessing our department services.

LADOT recently installed a new traffic signal adjacent to the school at Venice Blvd and 12th Ave following several crashes in the area. This signal will replace a flashing beacon, providing more robust safety infrastructure for the CD 10 community. The signal will be activated later this week.

CicLAvia: Fostering Community Unity and Connection in South LA

This past weekend marked the last CicLAvia of 2023, bringing together hundreds of Angelenos in South LA.  The event turned six miles of streets from Historic South Central to Leimert Park into car-free zones, giving people a chance to stroll and bike freely.

Open streets events like CicLAvia provide a platform for people to connect, get active, and appreciate the outdoors while discovering the rich history of their neighborhoods. Be the first to learn about the events coming in 2024 by signing up for CicLAvia's mailing list on their website

Now Hiring: Crossing Guards

LADOT is now accepting applications for new Crossing Guards. Crossing guards keep students safe traveling to and from school and help educate and instill safe, alert walking behaviors in young Angelenos. Our crossing guards are placed at schools throughout the city and help provide experience and judgment to help children navigate a school crossing, while also increasing the visibility of their presence to drivers.

If you are interested in applying for a crossing guard position you can visit the website for the application and instructions on how to apply
