Tune in to Which Way L.A.? tonight for a discussion of L.A.’s newly approved Mobility Plan.

From 7 to 8 p.m. tonight, tune in to KCRW radio 89.9 FM to hear Streetsblog L.A. Editor Joe Linton weighing in on the recent L.A. City Council approval of Mobility Plan 2035.

Mobility Plan 2035 envisions a multimodal transportation future, with enhanced facilities for walking, bicycling, driving, and riding transit. It sets an important Vision Zero policy target to eliminate all traffic fatalities in the city by 2035. The plan has numerous shortcomings, including continued road-widening, substandard crosswalks, and little in the way of actual assured implementation. Nonetheless, it has generated a backlash among car-focused Angelenos, who claim they are planning to go to court to undo its approval.
