Long Beach Boulevard Street Improvements

Long Beach Boulevard

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.

The City anticipates construction will start in July 2023. Construction activities will include the use of heavy equipment, traffic control, lane closures, and will temporarily impact parking. Some construction activities will impact noise levels, such as during concrete removals. Construction activities will be scheduled to minimize impacts where feasible. Construction signage will be placed with sufficient time to provide information needed to accommodate parking conditions.
