Culver Blvd Loss of Lane Causes Back Up at 90 Freeway in Evenings

Removal of one Culver Blvd westbound lane west of Lincoln Blvd as part of Vision 0 and Playa del Rey’s “Safe Streets” is causing a backup under the 90 Freeway in the evening. (Photos have been given to LADOT.)

There were two westbound lanes from Nicholson (Pershing Dr) to just west of Jefferson. Both eastbound and westbound lanes from Nicholson to Jefferson were changed to a one-lane configuration recently. The eastbound lane from Nicholson to just west of Jefferson was just reinstalled because of traffic.

Alla road which feeds into the freeway underpass at that point was backed up also, creating a time delay. Culver Blvd, east of freeway intersection and not shown, was backed up also. Photos were taken Wednesday at 7 pm.

Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) reinstalled the eastbound on Culver after the Fourth of July. A Town Hall meet will be held 29 July from 1 to 3 pm at Roski Hall, Loyola Marymount University. There apparently is a law suit pending.

Alla Road traffic trying to enter 90 Freeway interchange.

Culver Blvd with green light but traffic backed up. Traffic under the freeway from intersection to intersection was backed up. Culver Blvd was backed up east of the freeway intersection also. Almost impossible to get on 90 Freeway from Alla Road.
