Thanks, Vicki Karlan, for taking some great photos of folks riding the new Washington Place bike lanes. The lanes, which were explained in detail at this earlier post, were striped by the Los Angeles Transportation Department (LADOT) last weekend, Saturday December 10th 2011. They extend 0.77 miles – from Albright Avenue to Grand View Boulevard – in L.A.’s Mar Vista neighborhood, adjacent to Culver City.
As far as I can tell, since July 1st 2011, this brings the city of L.A.’s total bikeway mileage completed to 9.74 miles. That’s about half a year to complete about a quarter of the mayor’s pledged 40 miles for this fiscal year. Here’s hoping that the city is able to finish the other 30 miles in the next six months.
L.A. bikeway mileage completed so far in FY11-12, listed roughly by completion date oldest to newest: (I think that this is right, but let me know if I missed anything)
- Wentworth (Wheatland – Foothill) 1.30 miles
- Woodley (Saticoy – Sherman) 0.28 mile
- Jefferson (La Brea – La Cienega) 0.99 mile
- 7th Street (Catalina – Figueroa) 2.20 miles
- 1st Street (Boyle – Lorena) 1.60 miles
- Cahuenga (Odin – Yucca) 0.60 mile
- Reseda Blvd (Roscoe – Parthenia) 0.50 mile
- Spring Street (Chavez – 9th) 1.50 miles
- Washington Place (Albright – Grand View) 0.77 mile
- TOTAL 9.74miles
