This project helped the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority identify streetscape improvements for the Sunset Junction area
These improvements are desired by the community and will help support activities within the neighborhood. A series of public workshops and outreach events paired neighborhood leaders with regional transportation agency representatives to collaborate on possible solutions to facilitate more efficient transit service while also realizing local community goals.
The Sunset Junction Area Streetscape and Transportation Vision provides a modern blueprint for turning the Sunset Junction district into a model of coordinated bicycle, pedestrian, and transit activity that will benefit the community, local business, and the region. The vision suggests transit, pedestrian and bicycle improvements along three main commercial lifelines within the area: Sunset, Santa Monica, and Vermont Boulevards. Improving streetscapes and better integrating transit services in the district will increase community satisfaction and boost the multi-faceted use of these main arterials.
The Vision for the Sunset Junction area is a program for tactical improvements to the public realm: the sidewalks, the alignment and width of the road network, the location and design of transit stops, and the location of features including parking and open space within the study area.
