StreetsLA has begun the ADAPT (Adjusted Deployment to Accelerate Paving in High Traffic Corridors) program, an initiative announced by Mayor Garcetti on April 10, to take advantage of the reduced traffic resulting from the Safer at Home order. Lighter traffic allows StreetsLA to repair and sweep high-priority, high-traffic and commercial corridors more quickly and cost-effectively. It will also reduce impact on residents staying at home.
As a result of the Safer at Home emergency order, there has been a significant decrease in vehicle traffic throughout the City of Los Angeles. Meanwhile, maintenance, paving and sweeping of local residential streets has been complicated by relaxed parking enforcement and sometimes disruptive to residents who are staying safer at home. By maximizing our resources in this way, we can accomplish more with the same resources and help prepare the City for a post-coronavirus recovery.
StreetsLA is adapting its deployment schedule to the conditions of the COVID-19 emergency to:
- Advance and accelerate paving of select streets and major commercial corridors. High-traffic streets that had been planned for later in the year are being rescheduled for sooner this year.
- Expand streets sweeping from local residential streets to major commercial corridors. During the safer at home order, relaxed parking enforcement has diminished the ability of street sweeping to reach some curb areas but increased our ability to clean areas that would otherwise be blocked by commercial parking.
- Defer pavement of local streets to later in the year, thereby minimizing conflicts with residents staying safer at home and maximizing our resources to repair high-traffic corridors.
