Roxbury Drive Protected Bike Lane Pilot Project
On September 14, 2021, City Council approved the one-year Roxbury Drive Protected Bike Lane Pilot Project, which includes a southbound parking-protected bike lane and northbound conventional bike lane, connecting to bikeways in both Los Angeles and Beverly Hills and improving bicycle access to Roxbury Park. Bike lanes on Roxbury Drive are identified as high priority in the City’s adopted Complete Streets Plan.
The goal of the pilot project was to provide a more comfortable street for people to bicycle on by providing physical separation from moving traffic, while not removing any on-street parking or vehicle travel lanes.
The City is currently evaluating the results of the pilot project and exploring options for potentially transitioning the bike lanes into a permanent street feature. As part of that process, the public was encouraged to take a survey regarding their experiences traveling within or adjacent to the Roxbury Drive Protected Bike Lane Pilot Project and provide their thoughts on a potential permanent design. The survey closed on September 15, 2023.
The Traffic and Parking Commission will review potential options at their October 5, 2023 meeting. The Traffic and Parking Commission agenda and staff report with more information and images of the conceptual design options will be available by October 1, 2023 online at www.beverlyhills.org/TPCAgendas.
There is no one-size-fits-all definition of a Complete Street, rather, it is a design approach that integrates people and places in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks. This results in a connected system where certain streets prioritize different modes of travel – not every street can prioritize all modes, but each mode can have a holistic network that increases accessibility for people of all ages and abilities; balances the needs of different travel options; and supports local land uses, economies, cultures, and natural environments.

Through implementation of the Complete Streets Plan (adopted April 2021), the City aims to transform Beverly Hills from an auto-dominated community to one that embraces all modes of travel, reduces vehicle trips on our streets, and can be truly considered a world class bicycling city. This plan envisions a future where students can bike to school, families can take transit to their destinations, people of all ages can walk to neighborhood amenities, and the Beverly Hills community is a model for other jurisdictions.
