Fletcher Dr
Safety Improvements

It’s Time For a Safer Fletcher Dr

Since 2009, two people were killed and 10 people were severely injured traveling on Fletcher Dr. between I-5 and San Fernando Rd.

This portion of Fletcher 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.

About the Project

This comprehensive safety improvement project includes crosswalk upgrades, intersection tightening, bus stop relocation, protected left turns, and leading pedestrian intervals. This project will reallocate the street from two vehicle lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction with a center turn lane and bicycle lanes in each direction. The project is expected to calm traffic on neighborhood streets, reduce speeds and increase safety for everyone traveling on the street.

Neighborhood Input

  • On June 13, LADOT held an open house at the Goodwill Community Enrichment Center to share information about the project and solicit feedback.
  • A Public Hearing was held for this project on July 19, 2017 at Atwater Ave Elementary School. A public hearing officer was present to record comments into the public record. The project boards above (“Let’s Improve Fletcher Drive to Save Lives”) were on display at the Public Hearing and reflect community input gathered at the June open house.

What’s next?

  • On August 2, an open house will be held at Modernica, 2805 Gilroy St, from 6PM – 7:30PM. Come learn about and provide feedback on planned traffic safety improvements.
  • Project installation is expected to begin in 2017.
