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.
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.
