LADOT to Start Work this Sunday, February 19th on Sunset Triangle Plaza Project

Starting this Sunday, February 19, LADOT will close the one block of Griffith Park Boulevard, between Maltman and Edgecliffe Drives, to begin work on the Sunset Triangle Plaza project, a Streets for People (S4P) initiative. LADOT will use temporary barriers to close the site as they proceed with preparations that will include street surface grinding and painting, signage amends, and installation of bike corral and a safety barrier of planters. On Sunday, March 4, the Plaza will be officially opened with a ceremony set for 11:00am. The community is invited to join the celebration from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

More information about the Plaza program, LADOT work and Opening Day celebrations will be posted here as it becomes available.

The pilot Plaza will temporary close Griffith Park Blvd to automobile traffic for the duration of the project (approximately one year). There will be no changes Edgecliffe Dr. (on the west side of the plaza) so that automobiles may continue to access to Sunset and Griffith Park Boulevards. At Sunset Triangle Plaza, the twice-weekly farmer’s market will continue to operate uninterrupted and parking spaces will be created along Sunset Blvd, and all street furniture will be brought inside each evening to maintain its quality and cleanliness.
