Hollywood Avenue One-Way Conversion from Francisco to Sacramento
As of July 22, 2020, Hollywood Avenue, from Francisco Ave. to California Ave. will be converted to a one-way going east. I along with the help of the Department of Transportation have successfully met the requirements to redirect Hollywood Avenue, from Francisco Ave. to California Ave. On November 14, 2019, my office held a community meeting at Jamieson Elementary to seek public input on the issue and we solicited feedback for an additional two weeks following the meeting.
Some of the concerns associated with the street conversion included and were not limited to:
- Hollywood Avenue is too narrow (26ft) to accommodate two-way traffic (minimum width is 30ft)
- Increased congestion, especially during student drop off and pick up times
- Reported driver and student safety concerns
The official switch of Hollywood Avenue, from Francisco Ave. to California Ave. from a two-way street to a one-way street going in an easterly direction will take place on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. Temporary signage will be posted prior to the conversion indicating parking restrictions. Please be on the lookout for posted signs.
