Project Overview

The Huntington Drive Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Project will transform and improve the Huntington Drive corridor for all modes of transportation, including vehicle, bus, bicycles and pedestrians with enhanced access to commercial businesses, residential neighborhoods, educational facilities, recreational centers and industrial properties. The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, in partnership with Councilmember Kevin De León (Council District 14), plan to improve vehicular circulation, upgrade transit service and ridership, enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety and access, and integrate modern technology and travel options. Through this project, Huntington Drive would thus become a high-quality regional mobility corridor connecting various Eastside communities to Downtown Los Angeles.

Quick Facts

Mobility Improvement Concepts

  • Improve mobility for all roadway users, including vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians
  • Improve traffic flow and enhance safety
  • Create open space
  • Evaluate parking availability
  • Develop transit alternatives, such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
  • Incorporate emerging technologies

Three-lanes in each direction along the study corridor Approximately 40% of the corridor has either no or limited sidewalks Four Metro bus lines and one LADOT DASH bus line Features Class II bike lanes Corridor benefits travelers from Alhambra, Los Angeles and South Pasadena

Corridor at a Glance

The Huntington Drive Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Project is a four-mile stretch connecting the City of Alhambra and South Pasadena to North Mission Road near LAC+USC Medical Center. This section of Huntington Drive is a heavily trafficked, three-lane north-bound and south-bound roadway that serves residential, commercial, institutional, recreational and industrial land uses. The southern portion of Huntington Drive reduces to two lanes in each direction, continuing to Valley Boulevard. Key destinations along the corridor include Lincoln and Rose Hill Parks, LAC+USC Medical Center, and Cesar Chavez, Sierra Vista and Huntington Elementary Schools.

Alternatives Development

The City will consider a 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, requirements and the project goals of:

  • Connecting communities
  • Developing reliable modes of transportation and improved travel time
  • Improving safety for all modes
  • 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
  • Lead to transformation of land use
  • Be feasibly funded
