York Boulevard Road Diet Economic Impact Study

York Boulevard Road Diet Economic Impact Study

Organization: Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition

Year: 2011

Amount: $8,000

Status: Project complete

Type: Research

Address: York Blvd., Los Angeles, CA

With the help of an $8,000 grant, researchers from the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition will compare economic activity between two halves of a transportation corridor: one with car lanes reduced by half and bike lanes added, one unchanged. The study will look at commercial and residential property sales, number of new businesses, and perceptions about how the road diet may have affected property values and commerce.
