Garfield Avenue & Imperial Highway Street Improvements
Garfield Avenue and Imperial Highway are two major streets within the City of South Gate that have deteriorated with time. For this reason, they are currently undergoing rehabilitation to make the roadways more functional and aesthetically pleasing. Parkway landscape will be added along the medians of Imperial Highway that will include a combination of drought tolerant plants, decomposed gravel and boulders. In addition, sight evaluations are being performed along the side streets and driveways in order to eliminate any street trees and any other potential obstructions. Lastly, parkway trash receptacles, bike racks, bus shelters, LED street signs, and street furniture will be added and replaced. Construction is underway and is planned for completion in July of 2021.
The City has awarded a construction contract to Sequel Contractors to make street improvements to Garfield Avenue, Imperial Highway and Firestone Boulevard, at Otis Street.
