New Date: LaBonge Schedules Meeting to Discuss Dangerous Rossmore Intersection


If there’s one dangerous place that we hear about from our readers, it’s the section of Rossmore Avenue between Melrose Avenue and Rosewood Avenue. In particular, the intersection of Rossmore and Clinton is too often the scene of accidents and near misses for motorists and pedestrians alike.

Councilmember Tom LaBonge is addressing the challenge to find a solution.  The Councilman and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation will hold a Community Traffic and Safety Meeting to discuss options for traffic calming measures and a safer experience for those on foot.

This first meeting takes place next Tuesday, September 30 (originally scheduled for 9/23), and will focus on potential engineering changes to the intersection that will reduce the number of accidents taking place. Options will be presented. Area residents are encouraged to attend and join in the conversation.

  1. I live around the block from this intersection and it is incredibly dangerous. I hope the City is considering putting in a left turn pocket and restriping so that traffic will flow better. Also, left turn signals at Melrose and Rossmore would encourage traffic to stay on the major streets. A traffic signal would be an unmitigated disaster. It would encourage more cut through traffic through residential streets without providing any safety. The left turn restriction at Rossmore and Rosewood was put in because there were so many accidents, and that intersection HAS A TRAFFIC SIGNAL. So traffic signals obviously don’t work.
