Starting sooner than expected, the condition of the roadway on Wilshire Boulevard may no longer be LA's own inside joke. Repaving of the curb lanes between Wilton Place and Fairfax Avenue will begin this month, says Dana Gabbard at StreetsblogLA. The current rutted lanes are bad for everybody, but it's got to be worse for riders on the buses that hug the curb. Some curb-lane buses lean precariously toward the sidewalk, and the bump and grind as they hit the potholes is painful to watch even from a car driving behind.
