Feedback Sought on Temporary Intersection Enhancements

The demonstration project aims to illustrate the potential for pedestrian amenities that could be expanded in other parts of the City. The project will remain in place for at least six months.

Feedback Sought on Temporary Intersection Enhancements
BY Ana Figueroa November 17, 2020

The City of Beverly Hills is installing a temporary demonstration project at N. Camden Drive and Brighton Way. The purpose of the project is to test elements that could make streets more pedestrian friendly. Funded by a grant from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), the initiative is part of a Pedestrian and Bicycle Awareness and Education Campaign being disseminated on the City’s social media channels. The campaign is also front and center in a new grant-funded mobility website: www.beverlyhills.org/mobility. 

Enhancements to the intersection include brightly painted curb extensions that shorten crossing distances and make pedestrians more visible, and planters that separate the space from moving traffic. Later in November, additional delineators to separate the space, a more visible diagonal crossing design, bike parking, and public seating will be installed to compliment the City’s OpenBH program and allow visitors to further support the nearby restaurants.

The demonstration project aims to illustrate the potential for pedestrian amenities that could be expanded in other parts of the City. The project will remain in place for at least six months.

The City is asking community members to visit the intersection and respond to a short online survey to share their thoughts. The survey is available on the mobility website, which also includes resources about safely navigating Beverly Hills via all travel modes. The feedback from the survey will help the City determine if the demonstration project will be made permanent, modified, or removed, which is anticipated to be considered by the City Council in spring/summer 2021.
