The furor started last fall, when the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) unveiled designs to retrofit the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge. The proposal lacked accommodations for pedestrians and bicyclists, instead suggested expanding vehicular lanes, removing one sidewalk, and installing a central “crash barrier,” Damien Newton writes.
The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Enrich L.A., and other local organizations—together with plenty of individual walkers and cyclists—protested the move. As a result, the LADOT last week presented three new proposals, each of which include dedicated bike lanes and a road diet.
