Add Dickens & Sepulveda


Now Sherman Oaks has 4 intersections with traffic officers assigned during rush hour:
  • Ventura Blvd. and Van Nuys Blvd.
  • Ventura Blvd. and Beverly Glen Blvd.
  • Ventura Blvd. and Sepulveda Blvd.
  • Dickens St. and Sepulveda Blvd.
4 of the 51 intersections make almost 8% (2 tenths short) of all intersections with traffic officers in Los Angeles. Chew on that. (List via LAObserved)

I always have found it inexplicable that Ventura Blvd traffic cannot be better managed between Kester and Van Nuys Blvd.

One of the worst bottlenecks is the Sav-on parking lot. It is completely uncontrolled. The parking lot entrance should be on Cedros through the Bank of America property. Instead, there is a wall separating BofA from Savon. This forces all incoming traffic to Savon to turn in every direction off of Ventura.

The other problem is that Moorpark ends at Cedros. It does not connect to Kester. The big box stores of Savon and Pavillions cut off Moorpark. There is not a parallel alternative to Ventura--which is part of the true cause of traffic in Sherman Oaks in that area.
