      The City of Los Angeles adopted the 2010 Bicycle Plan on March 1, 2011, and all the required public hearings were held. On May 24, 2013, the City assessed all the traffic and safety impacts of the proposed 8.1 miles of new bicycle lanes on Figueroa, and determined that they would have little to no impact on traffic. The Colorado Blvd section of the Plan was implemented in 2013; no traffic impacts have been felt, and anecdotal evidence suggests that the business and safety climate have improved. The Figueroa corridor bike lanes have been vetted and approved by the city and voters, and will improve Figueroa's safety and prosperity, as well as connect it to the thriving business culture of the newly reconfigured Colorado Boulevard.

      It would be wonderful to be able to ride safely from home to downtown and destinations beyond. Bike lanes would help children get to school and back safer

      Cycling is critical to transportation equality, public health, air quality, and to fight global warming.
