Traffic Alert – Griffith Park – April 14-16, 2017

A message from the Department of Recreation and Parks:

TRAFFIC ADVISORY- EASTER WEEKEND AND GREEK THEATRE OPENING NIGHT

Spring Break has been busy yet running smoothly. Congestion has been reduced and people are using the DASH Observatory shuttles daily. LADOT has increased the number of buses and provided extra circulator shuttles from the Greek lot to the Observatory and back.  LADOT traffic officers have been stationed at the intersections of Los Feliz Blvd on weekends to assist with egress and Park staff has been increased to keep traffic flowing within the park. 

Tonight the Greek Theatre opens for the season and we are anticipating heavy traffic as Spring Break/Easter weekend may compound traffic impact. 

Recreation and Parks has been committed and remains committed to lessening impact in the neighborhoods, providing accessibility to all and protecting the natural environment.

Please forward any questions to:

7 Days a Week DASH Service to the Observatory and Paid Parking

Starting Tuesday, March 21st, the Griffith Observatory DASH bus will be operating 7 days a week, while paid parking is being implemented at the Observatory.

The DASH bus service will go from the Vermont/Sunset Metro Station all the way up to the Observatory, going mostly along Hillhurst Ave. before heading West along Los Feliz Blvd. and then going into the park along Vermont Ave.

The fare is 50 cents (35 cents with a TAP card), running every 20 minutes Monday through Friday from noon to 10 p.m. and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Parking closest to the Griffith Observatory will now be $4/hr, with the revenue going directly to continual traffic improvements at Griffith Park as part of the Griffith Park Transportation Plan, such as the expanded DASH service.

The Griffith Park Transportation Plan was vetted by park leadership with residents and other stakeholders for the past few years, including at several meetings hosted by the Los Feliz Neighborhood Council and the Los Feliz Improvement Association, among others.

No word yet on when the proposed DASH Los Feliz and DASH Hollywood routes will go into effect or what the final routes will be.

Support of Vision Zero

At the February 21, 2017 Governing Board meeting, the Los Feliz Neighborhood Council unanimously supported the Vision Zero Action Plan.

In addition to a letter sent to LA Department of Transportation General Manager Seleta Reynolds, Councilmember Ryu, and Councilmember O’Farrell, the following Community Impact Statement was filed with Council File 15-0546-S3:

The Los Feliz Neighborhood Council (LFNC) is in support of the Vision Zero Action Plan, as reported by Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) and dated February 1, 2017. The extent to which transportation related fatalities occur in Los Angeles, a premier international city, is an embarrassingly tragic reality. We support the efforts described in the Vision Zero Action Plan surrounding education, enforcement, engineering, evaluation and equity. No one should risk their life simply traversing the city to get to work, school, play, or home. For these reasons, the Los Feliz Neighborhood Council SUPPORTS this motion.
