The proposed changes would include the following:

Fairfax to Masselin Avenue

Eliminate two automobile travel lanes and narrow curbside parking lanes to create a center turn lane and bike lanes.

Hauser Boulevard to Dunsmuir Avenue

Eliminate two automobile travel lanes and narrow curbside parking lanes to create a center turn lane and bike lanes.

Dunsmuir to Cochran Avenue

Narrow curbside parking to create center turn lane and bike lanes.

Cochran to La Brea

Narrow curbside parking to create center turn lane and sharrows.

A March article from the Larchmont Buzz provides additional information on the subject.
