|Nelson\Nygaard provided technical assistance to the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) in 2017.
Nelson\Nygaard worked in cooperation with the Vision Zero Team to develop icons and renderings for projects ranging from lane reconfigurations, to curb extensions, crosswalks, and signal timing. This work built off Nelson\Nygaard’s Safe Routes to School work, which developed illustrations and narrative to familiarize community members with the engineering countermeasure toolbox.
We worked with planning and engineering staff in the conceptual design phase of Vision Zero project development, reviewed and recommended revisions to planned countermeasures, produced visual content, and facilitated a number of community meetings in South L.A. and Filipinotown.
The community meetings were instrumental in informing projects and garnering support for engineering solutions along priority Vision Zero corridors outlined in the Vision Zero Action Plan.
