Westside traffic relief coming with widening of Sawtelle
Los Angeles and Culver City road crews expect by mid-July to complete work on a new northbound left turn lane on Sawtelle Boulevard at Venice Boulevard.
The two cities jointly received a grant from Metro for the $250,000 project at the congested corner.
Sawtelle is being widened on the west side from Venice to 200 feet to the south.
New left turn signals have been installed for northbound and southbound traffic on Sawtelle. The aim is to improve safety and traffic flow through the intersection.
