The Santa Monica Boulevard Transit Parkway Project is the reconstruction and reconfiguration of 2.5 miles of Santa Monica Boulevard between I-405 on the west (Beloit Avenue) and the Beverly Hills city limit on the east (Moreno Drive). The new boulevard will have three eastbound and three westbound travel lanes. Neighborhood access roads on the north and south sides of the main road are planned.
The project will include a new street lighting and traffic signalsystem, a landscaped median, bicycle lanes and bus priority features. Additionally, the on-ramps to the northbound and southbound I-405 Freeway will be improved by adding High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)bypass lanes onto the freeway. Scope of work included the preparation of worksite traffic control plans, emporary traffic signal plans, and temporary street lighting plans for the proposed 5 phase construction process. Additionally, Aaron Calderon of DC Engineering Group worked closely with LADOT, LABOE, and CONAD in order to expedite the design, review, and approval of plans to meet the accelerated construction schedule.
