Metro has requested the Los Angeles Department of Transportation to deploy traffic control officers to four busy intersections earlier than expected, according to Councilman Bill Rosendahl's blog and an email alert from the Brentwood Community Council on Friday.
Starting Monday, Aug 6., traffic control officers will be deployed to the intersections of Sunset Boulevard and Barrington Avenue, Sunset Boulevard and Church Lane, Santa Monica Boulevard and Cotner Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard and Beloit Avenue during peak hours of 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. They will monitor traffic and adjust their hours if necessary.
The information comes a week earlier than the officers' anticipated Aug. 14 return when school is back in session. They were in mid-July.
The officers are called upon to handle busy traffic flow near the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project.
