Bike Plan Foresees Vastly Different Los Angeles

The recent adoption of a citywide bicycle plan in Los Angeles could bring about broad changes to the city's physical environment.

From bike lanes to bike boulevards to road diets, the city's roadways could see dramatic changes.

"'Mobility hubs' offering various travel options and services, are also on the table, said Claire Bowin, a planner at the LA City Planning Department. One station is already planned for the plaza fronting the Los Angeles Convention Center. Contracted by LA's Community Redevelopment Agency, Deborah Murphy Urban Design + Planning designed a one story, 2,300-square- foot facility with a generous 4,800-square-foot canopy and an LED display wall with integrated photovoltaics. Its amenities include restricted long-term parking, bike lockers, a repair shop, as well as changing areas and showers. The station is being funded through the Metro's 2009 call for projects and may be implemented in 2012."
