The City of West Hollywood’s traffic-striping contractor began re-striping and refreshing all existing roadway markings and legends on Fountain Avenue between La Cienega Boulevard to N. La Brea Avenue.
Work will involve refreshing all roadway striping and legends in thermo-plastic.Work will be performed during the late evening and early morning hours to minimize the impact to traffic and parking on Fountain Avenue. Work wil will take place nightly through Friday, May 13, 2022.
Activities will take place each evening beginning at 9 p.m. and may continue until 4 p.m. Crews will adhere to all roadway construction procedures and traffic devices as required in the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA-MUTCD) and at least one lane of traffic will be maintained through work areas.This project is the latest in a series of refreshments and enhancements for Fountain Avenue.
In 2019, the City completed crosswalk improvements with new flashing pedestrian warning lights that assist pedestrians with visibility when using crosswalks and help stop traffic along Fountain Avenue for safe crossing. Lighting was also installed on the edges of yellow diamond-shaped pedestrian warning signs and bright lights facing traffic lanes were embedded in the roadway, which form a visual line along the perimeter of each crosswalk. In 2018, the City of West Hollywood completed crosswalk safety improvements along Fountain Avenue at five key intersections where high-visibility striped crosswalks were added.
What we really need on Fountain are bicycle lanes.
They made a crosswalk on my street at Harper. There are red traffic cones blocking cars from making turns. Our those temporary cones actually the permanent solution? They get moved around all the time. I have put them back in place myself several times. Seems like they’re not finished.
