Roxbury Drive Protected Bike Lane Demonstration Project Event and Community Bike Ride
On Sunday, July 25, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the City of Beverly Hills will host a Protected Bike Lane Demonstration Project event to test a proposed protected bike lane on southbound Roxbury Drive, south of Olympic Boulevard, adjacent to Roxbury Park.
Using temporary markings, signs, and planters, this demonstration will show what a protected bike lane looks like and offer the chance for cyclists to test the proposed bike lane configuration and provide feedback on the design. Members of the community are encouraged to attend the event on bicycle, ride through the pop-up protected bike lane, and share their experiences and thoughts on the proposal. In addition at 10:30 a.m., Beverly Hills Mayor Bob Wunderlich will lead a Community Bike Ride along a two mile loop in the area.
This segment of Roxbury Drive is identified as a high priority project in the City’s Complete Streets Action Plan, a supplemental document to the Complete Streets Plan that City Council adopted on April 20, 2021. Due to the available street width, this location provides the opportunity to install a high-quality bicycle facility connecting to existing bike lanes in Los Angeles with no reduction of parking spaces or impacts to vehicle travel lanes. Following the demonstration project event, the City Council will review the findings, including public comments, and consider a plan for a one-year pilot project.

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.
