New Wayfinding Signage and Traffic Warning Signs in the Area

Cross Traffic Does not Stop 2

Area residents will notice new signs on their travels through the neighborhood. All of these signs are meant to be informative to both drivers and bicyclists. Many of the signs are known as wayfinding signage and are meant to help visitors make route decisions and navigate to key destinations.


Larchmont Village Signage

The Larchmont BID worked with Councilmember Tom LaBonge’s office to get ‘Larchmont Village’ signs installed on 3rd and Melrose to capture the attention of drivers who might otherwise pass by the Larchmont Village shopping district. These two signs were installed in May.


LADOT Bicycle Program Wayfinding Signage

Additionally, the LADOT Bicycle Program has been installing wayfinding signs in an effort to help bike riders know how they can use the larger citywide network to get where they want to go. We can expect to see signs along area bike routes directing riders to nearby destinations…or points along the way.

Problem Intersections

vertical Cross TrafficLastly, and perhaps our favorite signs…Councilmember LaBonge’s office has worked with area leaders to get signs installed at problem intersections – indicating that the crossing is not a 4-way stop. These signs are great and give both driver and cyclist an extra warning to consider before proceeding through.

  1. I like th signs which tell the bicyclist that there is cross traffic without stop signs. I have had a heart attack many times as a cyclist sails thru the intersection, never looking or stopping. Hope it helps.
