Which Way Olympic? Which Way Pico? ()
During the 1984 Olympics, Figueroa and Flower streets in downtown LA were temporarily switched to one-way thoroughfares in two different directions. Traffic flow was much improved and predicted local problems did not materialize, so the arrangement was made permanent. Now the Los Angeles City Council is studying a proposal to make Olympic and Pico Boulevards one way with Olympic going east from Santa Monica to downtown and Pico in the other direction. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky is pushing the plan.
