FROM THIS EPISODE

There have been twenty years of development on LA’s Westside, but no master plan for transportation.  The result is massive traffic congestion and a lot of unhappy people. Now the City Council has voted for temporary measures to ease the pain. Tonight we’ll hear about traffic signal improvements and left-turn lights.

Main Topic The Westide's Perpetual Traffic Jam

Massive development has created job centers in Santa Monica, Century City and Westwood. The price for commuters is some of the worst traffic congestion in all of Los Angeles. City Councilman Jack Weiss asked the Department of Transportation for its master plan and found out there was none. The Transportation Department, LA Metro and Caltrans now have agreed to work one up. In the meantime, the City Council has approved $6 million worth of projects to speed up the traffic. 

Guests:
Jack Weiss, Candidate, Los Angeles City Attorney
Jay Handal, West Los Angeles Neighborhood Council
