PRT Announces Summer Intensive


Venice Boulevard Closure Sunday

South Venice Boulevard will be closed between 1 am to 10 am this coming Sunday morning, October 4th, for the LA Triathlon, according to the signs posted along Venice Boulevard by the Department of Transportation. However, according to the message on Special Events (323-224-6534), Venice Boulevard will, in fact, be closed from 3 am to approximately 11:15 am and the only Venice Boulevard attempted crossing points for us will be at Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Lincoln Boulevard.

You may have already experienced in years past the intense traffic jams we’ve had because there were NO signs stating “no through traffic” posted at Dell Avenue at Washington Boulevard, NO signs posted at Dell Avenue and 28th Avenue, nor Dell Avenue and Court A (formerly Sherman Canal Court).

We’ve notified Transportation that the Venice Canals community is always plagued with traffic jams on the day of the Triathlon because Dell is a one-way street with no egress other than Venice Boulevard once you’ve entered the Canals at Sherman Canal. Some extremely frustrated drivers have even attempted to drive against the flow of traffic on Dell, trying to exit the Canals.

The Venice Canals Association has requested Transportation to post signs at the above locations this year in an attempt to alleviate the problem and we’re awaiting confirmation that this will be done.

In the meantime, however, if you need to use your car for any reason this Sunday, you may want to make arrangements to get it out ahead of time.

Great News !!!


GREAT NEWS … The new arch bridge has been ordered and should be delivered in 4 – 8 weeks !!! Demolition and removal of the old bridge will start as soon as the new one is on site.

The Shade Sails aspect of the project is taking longer than expected, due to unforeseen delays caused by the permitting process with the Department of Building & Safety … better to be safe than sorry, though – right?!?

We thank you for your patience and continuing support of our unique community !!!

The Venice Canals Association … Proudly serving our community since 1976 … membership does make a difference !!! Contact info: call 310.869.4733 or emaill
