Our office is providing enhanced enforcement in the Hollywood Hills areas near Griffith Park during Spring Break (March 19 – April 3, 2016) to help protect public safety and improve traffic flow.
Spring Break/Griffith Park Traffic
As we did on summer weekends and the holidays, CD4 is providing enhanced enforcement in the Hollywood Hills areas near Griffith Park during Spring Break (March 19 – April 3, 2016) to help protect public safety and improve traffic flow at Lake Hollywood Park, “dirt” Mulholland, Deronda Ave, Beachwood Dr. and other areas that will see increased visitors during this busy Spring Break period.
We are also working with LAPD on enforcement of tour buses and other overweight vehicles.
In Griffith Park, the Dept. of Recreation and Parks is utilizing the Greek Theatre parking lots including the use of the grassy area above the theatre in order to accommodate vehicles during spring break. DASH buses are bringing visitors up to the Observatory from the Greek lots to help ease congestion up to and on Western Canyon.
Additionally, DASH buses have been running during the weekdays every 20 minutes on a direct route from Vermont/Sunset Red line Metro station to encourage Park and Observatory visitors to leave their vehicles at home during this busy time!
For those choosing to drive, to improve traffic flow there are DOT officers stationed on Los Feliz Blvd. at Fern Dell, Vermont, Hillhurst and Commonwealth to direct traffic as well as electronic signage with updated information. Temporary “no parking” on Fern Dell and Commonwealth has been assisting Rec & Park manages egress from the Park.
Finally, the interest of protecting public safety and to better inform traffic and congestion mitigation efforts, our office has directed DOT to conduct a survey to obtain information on pedestrian and usage of vehicle in the Hollywood Hills and we are collecting data this Spring Break.
However, please be aware that Easter weekend are among busiest days of the year in Griffith Park (as well as the end of LAUSD Spring Break), so please be prepared and patient!
