Start of Hollywood-Western Streetscape Improvement Project 

On July 27th, City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell, Alfred Mata of the Bureau of Engineering, the Department of Transportation, and local community members kicked off the start of a major streetscape improvement project that will transform the eastern portion of Hollywood.

The Hollywood-Western Streetscape Improvement Project will improve mobility and safety on Hollywood Boulevard from Gower Street to Western Avenue. Some new features will include ADA accessible ramps, curb extensions, a new full traffic signal, high visibility crosswalks, and at least 30 new street trees.
