Input Requested on Hollywood Bowl Traffic!

With the upcoming Hollywood Bowl season starting up again in April, your feedback is requested on traffic related issues, solutions, and a community meeting date!

In 2022, the Hollywood Hills West Neighborhood Council (HHWNC) established a Joint Committee to address the ongoing traffic implications as a result of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association’s management of the Hollywood Bowl.
At the Joint Committee meetings, the community got together to identify the issues of concerns and prioritized a list of recommended solutions that were outlined here.
Since then, HHWNC has been working with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, LA County representatives, LA City representatives, and other neighborhood organizations to address the ongoing traffic concerns through the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association Hollywood Bowl Community Advisory Group.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association has limited the participation in the advisory meetings and the community is prohibited from attending.
HHWNC will host a community meeting in the coming months to:
  1. Update the 2022 list of traffic issues caused by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Associations’ management of the Hollywood Bowl; and
  2. Update the list of solutions that the community is requesting to address the traffic issues.

Hollywood Bowl Traffic Mitigation

Survey regarding Milner and Camrose Closure on Peak Bowl Traffic Nights 

Calling neighbors residing in Whitley Heights, Hollywood Heights & Outpost Estates and others- we need your input in this survey regarding the periodic closures at Milner and Camrose during peak Hollywood Bowl traffic nights.
Residents have expressed both support and frustration for the closures. Recent Gibson Transportation traffic study advises these street closures are providing support to nearby residents in protecting from unwanted cut-through traffic and parking on heaviest nights.
This feedback collected will help inform road closure strategies for 2023 season.
SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED- Thank you for your feedback. Results posted.
Current street closure FAQs: 
When & how did these closures get started? Was enacted by Hollywood Bowl neighborhood representatives, CD4, SD3 and the Hollywood Bowl in 2018 . In 2022, HHWNC received feedback from neighbors concerned they were not consulted for these closures by their neighborhood association representatives, so that is why we are taking an updated survey.
What is the current closure schedule? Closures are determined based on peak traffic indicators such as ticketing volumes, rideshare volume, and day of the week. Closures are planned and communicated to residents 4 weeks in advance by email. It is impossible to forecast how many closures the 2023 season may have, but it is possible it may have a similar season to 2022. In the 2022 season, Milner & Camrose was closed 35 times out of 112 total event dates.
What is the current process and impact to Navigation Services? Street closures can only be input to Navigation services (Google, Waze, Apple Maps) where there is an actual closure and enables traffic to be diverted around the area. Only full road closures may trigger notification with Navigation services, so it is not possible to keep the roads open and divert traffic; it’s one or the other.
What else is being done to reduce traffic? Hollywood Bowl, LADOT, LA County Parks & Recreation, SD5, CD4, and consultants are actively working on improving measures to reduce impact from operations: Increasing shuttle and bus usage (2022 current avg is 26% LA Phil-presented nights & of 22% on lease nights) , increasing pre-planning efforts including pre-selling parking and pre-show info marketing, increasing signage and traffic officers.
SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED- Thank you for your feedback. Results posted.
What is your preference for periodic closures at Milner & Camrose during peak Hollywood Bowl Traffic Nights?

Slow Streets
