Project Overview

Eastern Avenue is a centrally located and highly used street with treasured El Sereno institutions. The Eastern Avenue Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Project will transform and improve Eastern Avenue by building upon the Envision Eastern project to improve safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and drivers, increasing accessibility to El Sereno institutions for families.

The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, in partnership with Councilmember Kevin De León (Council District 14), will provide infrastructure improvements including street improvements to increase safety and mobility, pedestrian and bike facilities, transit accessibility improvements, and other traffic safety enhancements to improve the connectivity of the surrounding residential areas to the community parks, schools, and small businesses that bring life to Eastern Avenue.

Corridor at a Glance

The Eastern Avenue Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Project is a 1.5-mile-long neighborhood corridor connecting the critical transit corridors of Huntington Drive and Valley Boulevard. While Eastern does serve as a high-traffic artery for the surrounding residential neighborhoods, the Avenue also connects treasured El Sereno institutions that serve the surrounding families, providing community access to Woodrow Wilson Senior High School, the El Sereno Recreation Center, El Sereno Park, El Sereno Middle School, and local businesses.

Alternatives Development

The City will consider a wide variety of alternatives over the course of the first year of the project, assessing potential opportunities and challenges to maximize the utility and function of this important corridor. Alternative concepts will be developed in accordance with current, City design standards and the project goals of:

  • Improving safety for all modes
  • Providing accessible sidewalks
  • Developing reliable travel time
  • Implementation of a bike network
  • Incorporating Vision Zero standards

At each step in the process, the number of alternatives will be reduced, and the remaining concepts refined until a final, comprehensive set of alternatives has been established. The final multi-modal alternatives will:

  • Incorporate stakeholder feedback
  • Minimize environmental impacts
  • Have opportunities for green/open space
  • Allow easy access to destinations
  • Pay attention to transformation of land use
  • Are feasibly funded
