Reseda Boulevard Complete Street - $24 Million
For many years, the City of Los Angeles neglected its infrastructure, allowing its streets and sidewalks to fall into disrepair. Thanks to the generosity of Los Angeles voters who passed Measure M in November 2016 and who upheld SB1 in November 2018, the City now has permanent funding streams to tackle the backlog of needed infrastructure repairs and to build streets for the next century.
Councilmember Blumenfield ensured that the City’s Complete Streets Program included Reseda Boulevard between Victory Boulevard and Parthenia Street. This plan will rebuild streets that need physical repairs while adding safety and environmentally beneficial improvements to decrease traffic collisions on streets with a high incidence of fatalities and severe injuries.
Blumenfield secured Council approval for a $24 million project to reconstruct and resurface three-miles of Reseda Boulevard, build ADA-compliant sidewalks and curb cuts, add safety measures such as left-turn signals and high-visibility crosswalks, improve transit service with new bus boarding islands, install continuous and/or protected bike lanes, plant hundreds of new street trees, and install rain gardens to capture storm water.
Streets LA will begin construction late-2020 and complete the project in mid-2022. For more information about this project, click here.
