Don’t take Fountain. On Monday, May 9, 2022, the City of West Hollywood’s traffic-striping contractor will begin re-striping and refreshing all existing roadway markings and legends on Fountain Avenue between La Cienega Boulevard to N. La Brea Avenue. Work will involve refreshing all roadway striping and legends in thermo-plastic. The project is scheduled to take roughly five days. Expect traffic delays during the construction work.
The Re-painting work is scheduled to be be performed during the late evening and early morning hours in an effort to minimize the impact to traffic and parking on Fountain Avenue during busy work hours. Work will begin on the evening of on Monday, May 9, 2022 and will take place nightly through Friday, May 13, 2022. All activities will take place each evening beginning at 9 p.m. and may possibly continue until 4 p.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 for the flow of traffic.
This project is the latest in a series of refreshments and enhancements for Fountain Avenue. In 2019, the City completed crosswalk improvements with new flashing pedestrian warning lights that assist pedestrians with visibility when using crosswalks and help stop traffic along Fountain Avenue for safe crossing. Lighting was also 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 each crosswalk. In 2018, the City of West Hollywood completed crosswalk safety improvements along Fountain Avenue at five key intersections where high-visibility striped crosswalks were added.
