LADOT design plans for traffic lane reduction on Fletcher Drive

The City’s Department of Transportation (LADOT) is presently considering two alternative design plans to bring pedestrian/bicycle safety improvements to Atwater's section of Fletcher Drive; between San Fernando Road and the 5 Interstate Freeway. Both plans include a "road diet" or vehicular traffic lane reduction.

LADOT developed the plans without any community input, the plans are:

Alternative 1 – This includes an “off-peak lane configuration” in which vehicular traffic lanes would alternate from 2 to 1 throughout the day depending on “high peak” or “low peak” traffic flow. During “high peak” 2 traffic lanes would be available for vehicle use while prohibiting all on-street parking.  Alternatively, during “low peak” only 1 traffic lane would be available for vehicle use and on-street parking will be allowed.

Alternative 2 -  This includes a permanent traffic lane reduction from the current 2 lanes to 1. It also includes a dedicated bike lane and on-street parking.

Currently, there is no 3rd design plan and it is unknown whether LADOT will develop a new plan based on direct community input.
