The City of Los Angeles has completed the first phase of the $2.3-million Main and Spring Forward project, which adds protected bike lanes two of Downtown's most densely-populated thoroughfares.
The project, which affects Spring Street between 1st and 9th Streets and Main Street between Cesar Chavez Avenue and 9th Street, reconfigures both corridors to upgrade existing buffered bike lanes and reduce conflicts between cyclists and buses.
“Main and Spring Forward represents the cutting edge of street design in Los Angeles,” said Councilmember Jose Huizar in a release. “This complete streets project helps us meet our goal of prioritizing pedestrian, bicycle and public transit use as much as automobiles. Today, we celebrate a more accessible and livable Spring Street and look forward to improving this model as we begin work on Main Street and continue to push DTLA forward.”
