Long Beach Boulevard is a main thoroughfare that connects South Gate with neighboring cities. High volumes of pedestrian and motorist traffic travel along this street on a daily basis. For this reason, the City plans to improve the existing infrastructure and landscape. The project will include upgraded pedestrian lighting, enhanced crosswalks, flashing beacons, sidewalk repairs, curb ramps, and bicycle facilities. In addition, new green infrastructure elements will be installed such as non-invasive and drought tolerant trees and vegetation in raised center medians. Bio swales will also be installed in the parkways for storm water treatment and infiltration.
