Project Overview

The Valley Boulevard Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Project envisions transformative corridor improvements for all modes of transportation, including auto, bus, bicycle and pedestrian activities along the corridor. With this project, City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, in partnership with Councilmember Kevin De León (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. Valley Boulevard would thus become a high-quality, regional multi-modal mobility corridor to the communities in the City of Los Angeles and neighboring jurisdictions.

Corridor at a Glance

The Valley Boulevard Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Project is a four-mile stretch connecting the northern end of the I-710 freeway with Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles, via Valley Boulevard and North Mission Road. The portion of Valley Boulevard from Soto Street to I-710 is a heavily traveled, four-lane roadway that runs east to west, parallel to the I-10 freeway and serves a mix of land uses, including commercial, industrial, institutional, recreational and residential. Key destinations along the corridor include California State University, Los Angeles, Lincoln and Ascot Hills Parks, LAC+USC Medical Center and USC Health Science Campus.

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:

  • Connecting communities
  • Developing reliable 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
  • Pay attention to transformation of land use
  • Are feasibly funded
