Nelson\Nygaard developed the first Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan in the City of Lomita. The project was developed around a vision for the future in which individuals, whether 8 years old or 80, are served by a comprehensive, integrated transportation network providing safe, comfortable, and convenient access and mobility throughout the City.
In general, people in this city of 20,000, voiced an appreciation for walking local neighborhoods. However, bicycling activity was limited due to safety concerns from the lack of bicycle facilities and the high speeds and traffic volumes on the few corridors that traverse the city. Through engagement at community events, Nelson\Nygaard confirmed existing issues, a project prioritization framework, and preferred solutions. The plan was adopted unanimously in March, 2018.
