Following a long pilot period, construction will begin for MOVE Culver City, the permanent installation of new transit and active transportation infrastructure connecting Downtown Culver City with the E Line and the Arts District.
The initial phase of construction, which broke ground on Monday, will span Culver Boulevard and Washington Boulevard between Duquesne Avenue and La Cienega Avenue. According to an e-mailed announcement from the city, the scope of work will include:
- Removal of existing striping
- Installation of new striping
- Installation of bus and bike platforms
- Installation of transit and bike signals
- Painting asphalt art
Construction is expected to occur on weekdays between 8 am and 5 am, with intermittent work over some weekends.
MOVE Culver City was spawned a 2017 TOD Visioning Study, which proposed several strategies for easing traffic congestion and improving mobility in Culver City, including a "complete streets" makeover of Washington Boulevard which would restripe the corridor to include dedicated lanes for cyclists and transit vehicles.
Later phases of MOVE Culver City would bring similar changes to segments of Sepulveda and Jefferson Boulevards in the future.
