This project proposes transformative corridor improvements for all modes of transportation, including auto, bus, bicycle and pedestrian activities, along a four-mile stretch connecting the northern end of the I-710 freeway with Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. Valley Boulevard and North Mission Road are heavily traveled, four-lane roadways that run east to west and are parallel to the I-10 freeway, serving a mix of land uses, including: commercial, industrial, institutional, recreational and residential.
With this project, the City of Los Angeles, in cooperation with Council District 14, aims to improve transit service, connectivity and ridership, as well as increase safe access for travelers to employment centers, educational facilities, healthcare facilities, parks and recreational centers in the area. Improvement concepts may include:
- Incorporating Vision Zero features to increase safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all
- Alleviating delays, improve safety and address noise concerns at rail crossings
- Developing transit alternatives, such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), as appropriate
- Including electrification and emerging technologies
- Evaluating safer bike and pedestrian access
- Improving walkability and accessibility features throughout the corridor
