The city has announced plans to widen Culver Boulevard between Sepulveda Blvd. and Elenda Street (Elenda is the street with the traffic light). If the above 'simulation' illustration (looking eastbound at Huron Ave.) is any indication, the project will include the creation of (very welcome) left-hand turn lanes. And considering the way west-bound Culver Blvd. backs up in the evenings, presumably it would also include an extension of the right-hand turn lane to allow easier turns onto northbound Sepulveda Blvd. Still, I hope they don't mess too much with the lovely greenery that surrounds the bike lane on the north side of the street.

Here's what the city has to say about the project, which is the continuation of the widening of Culver Boulevard that was started by CALTRANS as part of the 405 Freeway widening in 2002:

The Public Works Department is excited about this project as it will resolve many traffic issues along this reach of Culver Boulevard; will incorporate an environmentally friendly component in the form of a green street design and bio swales in the bike path/landscape area; and provide for a safer and more aesthetically pleasing street.  

On January 21, the city hosted a meeting to discuss these changes, but I was not able to attend. Did anyone else go? If so, please share your observations in the comments section below.
