Dear Residents of The Oaks and Los Feliz,
Once again, Spring Break is fast approaching and we are anticipating increased traffic to Griffith Park from March 19th to March 27th. Department of Transportation (DOT) traffic officers will be stationed at the following entrances to the park on the weekends:
In the event that the roads become so congested that closures are made, please be ready to identify yourself to the Rangers or DOT Officers as a resident to gain access via Los Feliz Blvd. Additionally, we recommend taking alternative routes and side streets to gain access to your homes in an attempt to avoid heavy traffic and delays.
Please note that RAP has requested that DOT post ”NO PARKING” signs on the west side of Fern Dell from Los Feliz Blvd up to Black Oak to aid egress flow.
Additionally, please note that Western Canyon Road gates will remain open to two-way traffic all day until the usual sunset closure. Over the last year or so during high traffic times RAP has periodically closed the gates at Section 9 parking lot to control the amount of cars coming up to the Observatory. That will not occur this Spring Break.
DASH buses will run weekday service over this time from the Vermont/Sunset Red Line station.
Once the park has hit capacity cars will be turned away at Fern Dell and Los Feliz Blvd.
Cars attempting access via Vermont or Hillhurst will be directed out at Commonwealth from Vermont. There will be ” NO PARKING ” signs posted on the west side of Commonwealth all the way down to Los Feliz Blvd. to allow for egress. This is the exit valve that we always use during peak times.
Pedestrians should be aware of vehicle traffic during this time on the normally closed part of Commonwealth between the golf course and nursery.
RAP will utilize the Greek Theatre Parking lots including the grassy area above the theatre to accommodate vehicles during Spring Break. Circulating DASH buses with bring people from the Greek Theatre lots up to the Observatory and back in addition to the DASH route from the Sunset/Vermont Red Line station.
It will be a busy Spring Break and RAP will do everything we can to manage the traffic in the Park and attempt to lessen the burden placed on your community.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
