Laurel Canyon Boulevard is a stop and goes street that is the beginning of the proposed Laurel
Canyon Freeway. It is also served by Metro Local lines 230 and 218. Traffic in the area is
heavy and drivers should use alternate routes like the freeway. In this article, we will take a
look at the traffic on this popular stop-and-go road and why it’s important to monitor real-time
traffic on it.
Laurel Canyon Boulevard is a stop-and-go street
Laurel Canyon Boulevard, a busy north-south street in Los Angeles, is temporarily closed due
to a massive concrete slab fall. While two lanes have been opened since then, the street
remains closed to all but local traffic. Engineers and crews are working to fix the roadway.
Meanwhile, concrete barriers have been installed to slow traffic. But it is important to
remember that traffic will continue to be backed up along the road until it’s completely fixed.
Laurel Canyon Boulevard runs south of the Hollywood Freeway (SR 171), passing through the
Valley Village neighborhood. It is about a mile from Hollywood Split, the intersection of U.S.
101/SR 170 and the Ventura (U.S. 101/SR 134) freeways. A proposed freeway along the
Laurel Canyon Boulevard route would have connected southeastern Los Angeles to Los
Angeles International Airport. However, the Laurel Canyon Freeway never materialized, and
the neighborhood was transformed into a movie star enclave.
In the 1970s, Laurel Canyon was a place of free love, music, and drugs. It was a place that
embodied the psychedelic scene and was a magnet for aspiring hippies. Unfortunately, the
hippie lifestyle and Laurel Canyon Boulevard were doomed by the Manson murders, and the
neighborhood was once a thriving hippie haven.
In the 1960s, the area was a nexus of counterculture activity. Many famous rock and roll
musicians, including Jim Morrison of the Doors and David Crosby, lived here. The area also
became home to the Mamas & Papas and Joni Mitchell. In fact, “Ladies of the Canyon” is a
song about Laurel Canyon Boulevard, which is named after the neighborhood where the artist
The neighborhood was once the favorite hangout of hippies and creatives. Artists like Clara
Bow, Bella Lugosi, and Harry Houdini lived in the neighborhood. The Beatniks took over the
neighborhood after World War II, and Laurel Canyon was the center of hippie culture.
Famous people like Robert Mitchum were arrested for marijuana possession in 1948 and
sentenced to 60 days in jail.
It’s a stop-and-go street
The term “stop” is used to refer to a lane on a road that is not designated as a one-way street.
The word “stop” is derived from the Latin word for stop but is used in other languages as well.
It is the most commonly used word for this purpose. There are some differences between
these two terms, however. In some countries, the word “stop” is not used.
It’s served by Metro Local lines 218 and 230

It was the start of the proposed Laurel Canyon Freeway
Laurel Canyon Boulevard is a major thoroughfare located in the southern San Fernando Valley.
It crosses the Hollywood Freeway (SR 170) and passes through the Valley Village
neighborhood. It’s about a mile west of Hollywood Split, the intersection of U.S. 101/SR 170
and Ventura Boulevard/SR 134. It was the proposed start of the Laurel Canyon Freeway, which
would have connected the southeastern San Fernando Valley to Los Angeles International
Airport. However, the area quickly became a movie star enclave due to its proximity to
Engineers initially planned to connect the Los Angeles International Airport to the Hollywood
Bowl with a freeway. They were able to construct part of the freeway between La Cienega
Avenue and Slauson Avenue, which was later renamed La Cienega Avenue. The route was
built for about two miles before a final decision was made in the 1950s. It’s unclear exactly
how much of the original plan was built, but the proposed route was more than two miles long.
Originally, the Laurel Canyon Freeway was supposed to connect I-405 with State 170 in
Baldwin Hills. In the early 1960s, the proposed route was built in part to accommodate the
Laurel Canyon Freeway interchange. Nevertheless, opposition to the freeway stopped the
project. The project ended in abandonment in the late 1960s, but La Cienega Blvd was built
with four lanes and later widened to six. In addition, the proposed Laurel Canyon Freeway
replaced Slauson Avenue and Kenneth Hahn Regional Park.
This freeway route is not part of the original plan of the state. Despite the fact that it’s not part
of the current state plan, it was still proposed in 1957. The original route for the present day
Route 23 was originally a US 101 to Route 118 portion. This route was listed as LRN 155 on
the 1963 map. Another project that was planned in the 1950s was the Saugus Expressway.
The current route of US 126 is a continuation of the old route 76. The proposed Route 47
connects the Valley to LRN 167.
