Traffic and What We’re Doing About It!
Traffic in our area has returned to its high volume, with drivers being reckless and distracted – often looking at their phone instead of the road in front of them. Hancock Park has seen many accidents and other problems and the Association is working with the LA Department of Transportation on mitigation and safety measures.
Here’s The Plan!
6th Street between LaBrea and Highland– Installation of two speed tables on 6th Street. These will be installed after a discussion with the LA Fire Department to determine the safest placement and design.Team work! The HP HOA worked with the CD5 Council Office and our neighbors in La Brea Hancock to facilitate these safety measures that affect both neighborhoods!
3rd Street and Rimpau– DOT is considering the installation of a “Rest-In-Red” operation, which will keep the traffic signal displaying a red light for 3rdStreet when there are no vehicles traveling eastbound and westbound. Right now this signal currently “rests” with a green light being displayed.
Turn Restrictions on Highland Avenue:
- Beverly and Highland – 1) Full-time northbound left-turn restriction; 2) southbound peak hour restrictions will remain as they are.
- 3rd Street and Highland – 1) Full-time southbound left–turn restriction; 2) northbound peak hour restrictions will remain as they are.
- 6th Street and Highland -1)Full-time northbound left–turn restriction; 2) southbound peak hour restrictions will remain
as they are.
Installing a Speed Feedback Sign on Beverly in each direction, between Highland and Rossmore. The specific placement hasn’t been determined yet, but the project has been funded and should be completed this summer.
Stay Safe: We now have three active security patrols in our neighborhood – SSA, ADT and Magen Am. Alert your neighbors and the police if you see something suspicious. Leave outside lights on overnight. Lock your car. Lock your house. Set the alarm if you have one and consider installing one if you don’t. Stay alert on walks and while getting in and out of your car. Walk with a friend whenever possible.
Remember, we’ll be electing a new CD5 Council person in 2022. The Hancock Park Association will host a candidates’ forum in March, so you can meet and hear from the people running. It’s important! Our Council Member affects the daily life in our neighborhood and electing the right person is critical to the quality and safety of life in Hancock Park. We will be updating you as soon as we have confirmed a time and date for the forum.
