Packet for PSW&T Committee meeting 11/9/15
3-25-14 Meeting with Daniel Halden, HUNC reps and Oaks Reps regarding Franklin/Argyle intersection
Group met and discussed ways to improve traffic flow along Franklin Ave. and at 101 N. Ramp at Argyle.
IDEA #1- On westbound Franklin investigate acquiring a portion of the property on the NE corner of intersection with Argyle (next to mini mall) to add a third lane for traffic intending to turn right or enter onto the freeway. Other two lanes should remain as is, first going straight and second one given option of going straight or turning onto onramp, which has two lanes and could accommodate another lane.
IDEA #2- Extend light for north/south traffic on Argyle at intersection with Vine and Dix streets. Light for east/west traffic is timed for far too long given how few cars travel in this direction compared to Argyle.
IDEA #3- Eliminate the U-turn for eastbound traffic along Franklin onto 101 N. A large part of the reason why this intersection is so dangerous is that cars pile up along Franklin to get onto the 101 and often block first eastbound lane. They also present a danger for westbound vehicles whose drivers have to keep alert to make sure not to collide with them. With a large number of new vehicle trips expected from the new Millennium project, this intersection needs our renewed attention. Big potential impact.
IDEA #3b- As an alternative to turning north onto Argyle to enter the 101 N., install new signage on south side of Franklin west of Argyle directing eastbound traffic south along Argyle, onto Yucca and then right onto Cahuenga headed north. New signs should also be installed near Franklin and Bronson directing cars south on Van Ness to the 101 S. Will help to mitigate the removal of the U turn in #3.
IDEA #4- Move “101 North” sign on Argyle entrance to 101 higher up. Is hard to see from far away now.
IDEA #5- Add a crosswalk along the north side of Franklin between east and west sides of Argyle, just below freeway entrance, in order to allow access to nearby Ivar Park by local residents. Will also make it easier for residents on south side of street to cross Franklin and make it over to park, without having to walk all the way over to Cahuenga or else risk jaywalking, as many do now.
