Playa Vista Area – Local News + Updates
We’re always looking to keep the Playa Vista community informed with news and updates from the local area. Below you’ll find information regarding the CalTrans SR-1/Lincoln Blvd. project.
Ten years after the initial proposal to widen the Lincoln Blvd. bridge over the Ballona Wetlands was denied, CalTrans has put forth new plans to reconstruct portions of the roadway between Jefferson Blvd. and Fiji Way. The new project will address existing concerns regarding street congestion and safety for cyclists and pedestrians in the following three ways:
- Widen Lincoln Blvd. between Jefferson Blvd. and Fiji Way
- Replace and widen existing Culver Bridge over Lincoln Blvd.
- Reconstruct existing Culver Blvd./Lincoln Blvd. interchange
The widening of both bridges will include new vehicle lanes, bike lanes and sidewalks. In addition, the project will allow both streets to accommodate future light rail or Bus Rapid Transit.
These plans will require local community support. Playa Vista residents are highly encouraged to attend the upcoming public scoping meeting, participate in the process and submit a letter in favor of CalTrans’ proposed project.
