Yesterday, the city of L.A. Department of Transportation (LADOT) made
good on their pledge to stripe the first new mile of Reseda Boulevard
bike lanes. The lanes were approved in 1996, but languished for various reasons detailed earlier, until bicyclists and community members rallied. It’s one mile of a five mile gap closure.

LADOT pledged September implementation of a mile of new bike lanes from Devonshire Street to San Fernando Mission Road. Two weeks ago the upper half was done;
yesterday the lower half completed the mile. The new lanes actually
extend a bit a above San Fernando Mission Road nearly to the 118
Freeway, and a block below Devonshire to Lemarsh Street.
