Dupont Schools The West Coast

Could DC teach LA a thing or two about managing traffic congestion? Architect Jamie B. Myer seems to think so and he wants to bring the design behind Dupont Circle to the 405. He explains: ""One of the most unique features of Dupont Circle is that the through-traffic actually bypasses the circulation in a tunnel underneath the roundabout...So, start by digging out the through tunnel, from West of Sawtelle, to East of the 405...This lets folks just cruise on past the 405 and get where they’re going..." A full set of pictures and schematic layouts can be found on his blog. [Tech Def via Curbed LA].
