Heading Bullet    1st Street Bridge & Street Widening Project - Background

The City of Los Angeles is planning improvements to the 1st Street Bridge and Roadway that are designed to ease impacts that will result from extension of the MTA Goldline (Eastside Light Rail Transit) from the downtown Union Station to Beverly and Atlantic Boulevards in East Los Angeles. A portion of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) project’s alignment includes a surface alignment along 1st Street from roughly Alameda Street on the west to Gless Street on the east. The study area for this proposed project involves 1st Street from Vignes Street on the west, easterly across the 1st Street Bridge to Mission Road, and easterly along 1st Street to Clarence Street.
