Changes Coming This Week to Culver & Vista del Mar
On Saturday July 29th, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) will be implementing a new traffic pattern at the intersection of Culver and Vista Del Mar. The traffic signal will be modified to ease congestion and provide smoother traffic flow. To accommodate these changes, some drivers will access their destinations in a new way. The diagram to the left provides an overview of these changes.
Culver, Jefferson, Pershing
LADOT recently installed transportation safety enhancements along Pershing Dr, Culver Blvd, and Jefferson Blvd in Playa del Rey. The new street designs along Culver Blvd and Pershing Dr incorporate protected turn lanes that make the street more accessible and safe.
The new street design addresses acute safety issues on Vista del Mar for beach visitors. Vista del Mar runs along Dockweiler Beach in the Playa del Rey neighborhood. LADOT took action to address the immediate safety issues on the street prior to the high-use summer months. LADOT removed parallel parking from the east side of the street to eliminate unsafe crossings, reconfigured parking to maintain/increase access to affordable parking, and added new designated areas for safe u-turns.
