KOA conducted community engagement and developed specific bicycle and pedestrian countermeasures to improve safety around 41 of the Top 50 schools with the most collisions within the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). KOA worked with LADOT, StreetsLA, LAUSD, and school staff to coordinate walking safety assessment events with parents and students to identify safety problems and assess solutions to improve conditions. The public engagement process has been recognized in the industry at conferences such as National Association City Transportation Officials (NACTO) and the American Planning Association (APA). The input received was used to develop engineering improvements, plans, and cost estimates for 41 schools – in accordance with all MUTCD and LADOT standards and guidelines. KOA planned, coordinated, and implemented three multi-day pop-up demonstrations showcasing the recommended treatments. KOA also assisted the City in developing grant applications for ATP Cycle 4 funding in 2018, and ATP Cycle 5 in 2020, which resulted in the City resulting in approximately $50 million in construction funding. Various elements of the project have won awards of excellence by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Metropolitan Los Angeles Branch Chapter Award in 2019 and 2020.
