On Monday, August 29, 2022, the City of West Hollywood’s traffic-striping contractor will begin re-striping and refreshing all existing roadway markings and legends on Santa Monica Boulevard between N. Doheny Drive to N. San Vicente Boulevard. Work will involve refreshing all roadway striping and legends in thermo-plastic. The work will be done in the late evening early morning to avoid traffic jams on Route 66.
Work will be performed during the late evening and early morning hours to minimize the impact to traffic and parking on Santa Monica Boulevard. Work will begin on the evening of on Monday, August 29, 2022 and will take place nightly through Friday, September 2, 2022. Activities will take place each evening beginning at 9 p.m. and may continue until 4 a.m. Crews will adhere to all roadway construction procedures and traffic devices as required in the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA-MUTCD) and at least one lane of traffic will be maintained through work areas.
This project is the latest in a series of refreshments and enhancements for roadways throughout the City of West Hollywood. During the past several years, the City has completed crosswalk improvements with signalization on Santa Monica Boulevard for safe crossing and flashing pedestrian warning lights that assist pedestrians with visibility when using crosswalks and help stop traffic along Fountain Avenue. Lighting has also been installed on the edges of yellow diamond-shaped pedestrian warning signs and bright lights facing traffic lanes were embedded in the roadway, which form a visual line along the perimeter of certain crosswalks in the City.
