Activating City Streets for Angelenos

Just like our City, LADOT never stops moving. This weekend is a good example of the wide range of operations that the department manages.

LADOT Special Traffic Operations Crews will begin setting up closures and detour routes to support the 39th running of the Los Angeles Marathon late Saturday night into Sunday morning. This event attracts thousands of athletes from around the world to run from Dodger Stadium to Century City through the heart of our City.

As marathon runners are crossing the finish line on Sunday, an LADOT hosted celebration will be starting in Reseda Park to mark the completion of the Reseda Blvd Complete Streets project. For almost 3 years, LADOT worked alongside the Bureaus of Engineering and Street Services to deliver one of our most comprehensive corridor projects to date. Those who live and work along Reseda Blvd have been excellent partners as the City has delivered over 100,000 square feet of sidewalk repair, 6 miles of protected bike, 11 new bus boarding islands, and almost 100 new curb ramps. To celebrate this example of how we can build streets that support all modes of travel, we’re partnering with CicLAvia for a block party that includes music, street games, vendors, and community resources at Reseda Park. It will be a perfect day to gather with family neighbors welcome to all ages and abilities.

So whether you're participating in the Marathon, joining us to celebrate Reseda Blvd, or making other plans to enjoy what's expected to be a beautiful warm weather weekend, we at LADOT are happy to support your travel to, from, and around Los Angeles.



New All Way Stop Improvement in Lincoln Heights


New All-Way Stop Improvement in Lincoln Heights

LADOT recently joined Councilwoman Eunisses Hernandez in CD1 to celebrate the installation of an all-way stop on Griffin Ave and Avenue 31 in Lincoln Heights, an intersection near transit stops where community residents travel to get around town.

This collaborative effort is the result of a request from the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council following a fatal collision involving a pedestrian in Fall of 2023. LADOT responded to the request by introducing traffic calming measures that encourage drivers to reduce their speed to foster safer movement through the intersection. We are grateful to communities for their advocacy and partnership in the mission of improving safety on our streets.

LADOT Celebrates Women in Transportation History - Annie Londonderry

The country was in a bicycle boom at the time, with women enjoying the freedom the bicycle gave them to travel outside of the home. Londonderry became a celebrity as she completed her trip, inspiring other women to take up cycling.
