The city of L.A. Department of Transportation (LADOT) is putting the finishing touches on new bike lanes on Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood. The new bike lanes run 0.7 miles from Selby Avenue to Beverly Glen Boulevard. They extend the existing Wilshire bike lanes that currently run 0.2 miles from Beverly Glen to Comstock Avenue.

The new bike lanes were added without removing any travel lane capacity. Most of the new Wilshire lanes are buffered bike lanes, though the street width varies, so in some areas the buffer is omitted. The new bike lanes are part of a street resurfacing project that extends from Beverly Glen to Westwood Boulevard. As of yesterday, the new lane markings were mostly complete, with bike lane symbols and some striping on the buffers still to come.

This neighborhood has resisted bicycle and transit facilities in the past. Residents opposed the planned Wilshire Boulevard peak-hour bus-only lane project. They also fought against bike lanes approved for nearby Westwood Boulevard.
