City Braces for Summer Traffic Jams:

For the fifth consecutive year, Santa Monica traffic officers will man key intersections in the downtown and beach areas every weekend through the summer to keep traffic and pedestrians moving safely.

The increased effort by the Police Department will begin Memorial Day weekend, including Monday, July 4, and conclude after Labor Day.

“Lincoln Boulevard and Fifth Street are far less crowded approaches to Downtown than Fourth Street,” said Lt. Clinton Muir, head of SMPD’s Traffic Division. “We encourage visitors to ‘take the Fifth’ toward downtown and beach-goers to take Fourth south to Pico to the south beach parking lots, if arriving after 11 a.m., when parking becomes scarce on or near the Pier.”Parking $6 all day or $1 an hour for a two-hour maximum stay in South Beach lots that are accessible from Pico and Barnard Way, and feature free shuttle service to the Pier and Promenade.
