The City of Beverly Hills is studying ways to reduce speeding and cut-through traffic to create a safer and more comfortable street for residents—especially those who walk or cycle.
On Saturday, March 25, 2023, the City placed temporary traffic calming devices at the intersections of Clifton/Le Doux and Clifton/Stanley for the community to experience and provide feedback to the City. Below are conceptual designs of the temporary traffic calming devices, which included a traffic circle and curb extensions.
As a follow-up to the event, the City hosted an online survey in April/May 2023 regarding your experiences using the temporary devices and thoughts regarding longer-term installations. Staff presented preliminary survey results at the June 1, 2023 Traffic and Parking Commission meeting (view the staff report here). Final survey results indicated continued support for the project, including a 6-month demonstration of traffic calming devices on Clifton Way between Robertson and La Cienega Boulevards.
At the October 5, 2023, Traffic and Parking Commission meeting, staff presented conceptual design for the potential 6-month demonstration, which could begin as early as winter 2024. The Commission unanimously recommended that City Council install the temporary project. To view the meeting recording, click here. To view the staff report, click here.
The next step is for City Council to consider approval of installation of the 6-month demonstration. To obtain community feedback, the City invites the community to participate in the upcoming City Council Study Session meeting:
