Featured Project: Scramble Crosswalk at Hollywood and Highland

At Hollywood and Highland on November 15, LADOT and City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell, 2015 celebrated a new scramble crosswalk, a crossing system that stops all vehicular traffic for 44 seconds and allows pedestrians from any street corner to cross in any direction simultaneously. The installation will surely benefit the site as it is one of the busiest intersections in the city and attracts an influx of tourists strolling through tourist shops and attractions along Hollywood Blvd. The City also expects this new crossing system to realize a significant drop in collisions between those walking and driving and improve the perception of safety on the street.
