405 Speeds Little Changed

From http://zev.lacounty.gov/news/405-speeds-little-changed

Afternoon rush hour speeds on the northbound 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass appear to have stayed relatively constant—or perhaps gotten a bit slower—in the year following the full opening of a new carpool lane at the heart of a $1 billion-plus improvement project, according to a recent two-week sample by a traffic monitoring firm.

But given the increase in cars on the road due to an improving economy, just staying even may be an accomplishment, according to analysts at INRIX, which monitors traffic for clients including government agencies and media organizations.

The firm looked at afternoon travel times on the northbound 405 between the 10 and the 101 this September, when the new carpool lane was fully open for business, and the same period last year, when only a 1.7-mile stretch of the new lane was in use. INRIX did not have a measurement of travel times during the same period in 2009, before the project started. Caltrans and Metro said they were unable to immediately provide their own travel time statistics for either the 2013 or 2014 period, or for the same period in 2009, before the project began.

Limiting Mansionization throughout the City of Los Angeles

On Tuesday, the City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee heard a Planning Department report on the City’s Baseline Mansionization Ordinance (BMO) and the Department’s Neighborhood Conservation Initiative.

While the Planning Department begins work to close loopholes in the BMO and develop additional neighborhood conservation tools, the report recognizes that certain specific communities may need immediate relief.

The report will return to the Committee prior to moving to full Council for adoption.
