Since 2009, 3 people were killed and 27 people were severely injured traveling on West Adams Blvd between Fairfax Ave and Crenshaw Blvd.
This portion of Adams was identified as a High-Injury Network Priority Corridor in the City of Los Angeles’ first ever Vision Zero Action Plan, published in 2017. Vision Zero uses collision data to prioritize safety improvements aimed at ending preventable traffic deaths by 2025.
This 2-mile project is located on West Adams between Fairfax Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. Improvements include new speed feedback signs, crosswalks with flashing signals, protected left turns, and leading pedestrian intervals. Treatments also include roadway reallocation from 2 lanes in each direction to 1 lane in each direction with a center turn lane and buffered bicycle lanes in each direction. Proposed improvements will achieve calmer traffic on neighborhood streets, reduced speeds and increased safety for all modes, including for people walking and bicycling.
Project installation is scheduled for 2017.
