A short, spartan pedestrian path in Culver City is about to get some TLC.

Rendering of Farragut Connector ReplacementCulver City

Culver City has announced that construction is about to begin for the replacement of the Farragut Connector path, which runs along Farragut Avenue between Jasmine and Jackson Avenues. Plans call for replacing the existing path with a new one that includes an irrigation system, illuminated bollards, a bottle filler, a pet drinking fountain, new fencing, and landscaping. After completion, the space will also add public art.

The updated design for the connector will expand upon the 10-foot-wide path that exists today, instead making use of the city's full 25-foot-wide right-of-way. Additionally, it will incorporate an ADA-compliant curb ramp on Jackson Avenue to accommodate bicycles, wheelchairs and strollers.

Absent from the final plan are benches, bicycle racks, and a community bulletin board, which were removed due to concerns from nearby residents that park-like element would cause passersby to "dwell" in the connector.
