New Traffic Signal Makes Lankershim Safer for Pedestrians, Cyclists


LOS ANGELES - Councilmember Krekorian and community members activated a brand new traffic signal and crosswalk at Lankershim Boulevard and Dundas Drive. The signal and the new crosswalk are vital safety improvements for this busy corridor that will protect pedestrians.

Since 2014, Councilmember Krekorian has worked with public and private partners to improve Lankershim, including partnering with the North Hollywood Business Improvement District to open and provide programming on the NoHo Plaza People Street; working with the Laemmle NoHo 7 to add a bike corral next to the theater; partnering with Metro to restore the historic Lankershim Depot and reopen it with Groundwork Coffee as a tenant; creating an underground pedestrian walkway between the Orange and Red Line stations to enhance pedestrian safety; and adding crosswalks with rapid flashing beacons. 

Each of these projects has improved mobility, safety and connectivity, in keeping with Krekorian's commitment to implement the goals and objectives of Vision Zero in the heart of the NoHo Arts District.
