GRIFFITH PARK CIRCULATION ENHANCEMENT PLAN

Council District: 4 Griffith Park

Project Location: The Project area is within Griffith Park and the Los Feliz area of the City of Los Angeles roughly bounded by Mt. Hollywood to the north, Roosevelt Golf Course the east, Los Feliz Boulevard to the south, and Fern Dell Drive to the west, with Griffith Observatory in the center of the Project area at 2800 East Observatory Road.

Project Description: The proposed project would involve roadway and parking lot improvements to enhance circulation in the vicinity of Griffith Observatory. There are three primary components to the proposed Project: (1) constructing physical improvements to roadways and parking areas to improve multi-modal circulation in the vicinity of Griffith Observatory; (2) installation of pay stations to permit charging of storage for vehicles in the Observatory Parking Lot, along East and West Observatory Roads, and the upper portions of Western Canyon Road, and (3) introducing a free or low cost shuttle system around Griffith Observatory to Park visitors to improve public access, supported by the implementation of specified metered parking locations.
