THE BOULEVARD PROJECT
The Boulevard Project, led by the City of South Gate, seeks to provide congestion relief, increase
driver and pedestrian safety and beautify the corridor.
Traffic congestion on Firestone Boulevard often exceeds available capacity, making it difficult for motorists to travel to and from home, work, school, church, restaurants or other destinations without traffic delays. As the sole east-west arterial that spans the entire City of South Gate, Firestone Boulevard is heavily transited by residents and serves as a regional corridor for neighboring cities; sometimes exceeding 77,000 vehicles per day near the I-710 highway.
The Boulevard Project is a multifaceted infrastructure improvements program that will address an array of challenges facing the Firestone Boulevard corridor, from Alameda Street to Annetta Avenue and from Rayo Avenue to Firestone Place.
The project will significantly enhance Firestone Boulevard by increasing the overall number of lanes from four to six; synchronizing traffic signals; adding landscaped and hardscaped raised medians; and adding aesthetically pleasing features.
Construction of the project will begin January 2018 and take 15 months to complete. Please use the contact us form to sign up for construction alerts or contact us at (833) NEW-BLVD/(833)639-2583.
