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.

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.

As California continues to weather through the drought, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Water Conservation Response Unit (WCRU) is stepping up public education and enforcement of the water conservation ordinance with three additional staff members and specially marked vehicles. The additional staff has already begun patrolling the city of Los Angeles for water waste and responding to tips provided by phone, email and through social media.

LADWP’s General Manager Marcie Edwards says, “The WCRU will help remind customers about our watering restrictions, the importance of saving water, and enforce the ordinance in a friendly yet firm way.” She adds, “They are also great sources of information on how to become more water efficient in your home and outdoors, where about half of all water is used.”

L.A. is currently in Phase 2 of the mandatory water conservation ordinance. This phase prohibits the following uses of water in Los Angeles: Read more »

Los Angeles: Today, Los Angeles Police Commission President Steve Soboroff stated the following:

Today, my fellow Commissioners and I completed the process of reviewing Chief Charlie Beck’s request for a second five-year term, and we granted him that request in a 4 yes and 1 no vote.

We received a great deal of help in our decision making process, and that help came from the people of Los Angeles. I want to thank each and every person who sent an email, wrote a letter, or came out to a community meeting to let us know exactly what they want, need and deserve in their Chief of Police. These comments made an impact on each of us and we are very appreciative for the assistance.

This process lasted approximately three months and included numerous interviews with Chief Beck. During those interviews, Read more »
