      Another point:

      Opening up Scott has caused HUGE delays in both directions on Echo Park Avenue, all the way from Bellevue to Scott going north, and all the way from at least Effie going south.  Such has not been the case in many years (since Scott was closed).

      What does Councilman O'Farrell have to say about this?  Is anyone at his office listening to this?

      In theory, the traffic person at Scott and Echo Park, is supposed to only allow people with placards up Scott, but I'm not sure how much attention he paid to me driving by him.

      Checked my notes, they are supposed to be checking local access at Scott and Echo Park, otherwise they'd end up clogging Scott all the way down to the park just to be turned away and to then go down Portia (which wouldn't make any sense if we're trying to protect these streets from traffic).
      Heard they do plan in adopting the actual real plan tomorrow and not today (sheesh).

      They're supposed to be blocked from crossing Stadium Way on Scott, for entrance to Stadium. However, Scott will be a through street for exit.

      It is because the Scott gave is now open for entry from that side of the stadium, that we want to deter anyone attempting to access the stadium from Scott Avenue at Echo Park Avenue. Hence the road block that was supposed to be present at that intersection.
      DOT will (err, should) be present at the end of the game to help with traffic flow, but my concern is presence before the game - that's supposed to keep people from going up Scott Avenue and into the Stadium. Isn't that why we got those resident passes?

      LADOT returns at game end. They have no idea that the stadium starts emptying during the 7th inning tho.

      Hubby just checked - there's an LADOT officer at Scott & Sargent but no LAPD. Aren't they the only ones who can enforce the "Parking Pass" provided to us by the Dodgers (when really it's not even a parking pass, it's supposed to be a resident access placard)? Making my second round of phone calls but have not been able to get ahold of anyone yet...

      Howdy, neighbors -

      I was at the meeting at Barlow Hall last week, leaning on the Dodger representatives for pay-as-you-leave, along with DUI checkpoints at the exits for drivers and pedestrians alike. Franchises have a big problem with inebriated customers leaving their parks; breathalyzer checkpoints at the exits will make their customers think twice about that third beer. 

      Like a lot of big, annoying corporations, the Dodger Organization is externalizing their costs -- they're bottlenecking their customers on our streets, instead of having the bottleneck play out on their property. (The correct term is "customers" not "fans." Teams have fans; team owners have customers.)

      Aside from this Scott Avenue mess, those two things -- pay-as-you-go and breathalyzers at the exits -- will dramatically ease problems in the long run. We should keep all three of them on the front burners.

      I must be a little confused about what is supposed to happen with this Scott Ave gate opening today, hoping for a little clarification because I must have it all wrong.

      Isn't there supposed to be some kind of enforcement in the form of LAPD or LADOT at Scott Avenue and Echo Park Ave? I took the attached pic just about 30 minutes ago - I realized it's pretty early, but it is opening day and we have, in the past, had a parking lot in front of our houses as early as 10am because there's a backup for gate entry.

      Additionally, I didn't see anything down at Scott and Stadium - shouldn't there be someone or something? An A-frame at the top of the hill perhaps? It just seems like Scott is open to anyone and everyone at this point. I'm a little worried!

      Thanks for the clarifications...!
