New lane configurations on Figueroa
Over the weekend, traffic lanes were reconfigured on Figueroa St, between Exposition Blvd and 22nd St, to allow for two lanes of car traffic on either side of the street. The two median islands on this stretch are scheduled for construction this week.
New traffic control is also in effect on 11th St, as construction shifts to the south side of the street. The finishing touches of landscaping seat walls and final concrete repairs are taking place on the north side of 11th St, and on the south side, curb and sidewalk work, installation of stormwater catch basins, and traffic signal improvements will be starting soon.
Work continues on the Figueroa St bus platforms as well, with bus shelters currently being installed on the on the east side of the street and new railings for the bus platforms on the west side coming soon.
Project completion is in sight, with the final street resurfacing and striping on the southern stretch of Figueroa currently scheduled for mid-April. Check back for more updates, as we get ready to open MyFigueroa to the public later this spring!
