Santa Monica Blvd Reconstruction Project

The Project, now underway, will reconstruct a segment (approximately 1.5 miles) of North Santa Monica Boulevard extending from Wilshire Boulevard to Doheny Drive in the City of Beverly Hills. The project will rebuild the deteriorating roadway; upgrade the storm drain system, replace curb and gutters; upgrade access ramps to American with Disability Access (ADA) standards; and install new LED street lights. Enhancements to the roadway include the installation of a bioswale on the north side, landscaping improvements, and widening the south side between Canon Drive and Wilshire Boulevard. The City Council formed a 15-member Blue Ribbon Committee in 2013 to conduct public outreach and develop recommendations for the project design.  The City Council also appointed the Traffic and Parking Commission to develop recommendations for traffic mitigation.

Options for mitigating traffic during the reconstruction project fall into three primary categories:

  • Public Information Program
  • Measures to prevent traffic diversion to residential streets
  • Measures to maintain access to the business triangle from South Santa Monica Boulevard through parking changes
 

BENEFITS

The project will completely rebuild the roadway and upgrade the century-old drainage system between Doheny Drive and Wilshire Boulevard. The project design includes “green street” drainage, new decorative street lights, drought tolerant landscaping and widening a portion of the roadway on the south side between Canon Drive and Wilshire Boulevard.
