Eyes On the Street: New Counterflow Bike Lanes at UCLA
The UCLA campus now has what I am pretty sure is L.A. County’s first counter-flow bike lanes.* The one-block bike lane is on Dixon Court, formerly just a one-way street.
Alta’s Ryan Johnson mentions:
This was a major gap in the campus bike route network, leading from a popular commuter bike route to the Urban Planning department and a satellite student union. It was previously one-way only, and campus police sometimes gave students tickets for bicycling against traffic. Urban Planning students pushed for a solution like this for years, and the campus finally came through!
Now if there were only a safer way to get through Westwood to the UCLA campus… hmmm.
