Work on the so called Main Street ‘road diet’ between the Windward Circle in Venice and the Santa Monica border has ended. The reconfiguration of Main Street has removed one travel lane in both the north and south direction, created a central two-way left turn lane and added a bicycle lane in both directions. All on-street parking spaces remain. It essentially extends the same configuration used through the Santa Monica corridor, allowing for more than an additional mile of continuous bike lane. “This road diet will meet the needs of the increasing number of bike commuters on the Westside,” Los Angeles Councilman Bill Rosendahl said. “In addition, the work will create a safer environment for all modes of transportation.”
