Century Corridor Streetscape Plan

The Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, in partnership with the Gateway to L.A. BID, have developed a streetscape plan for Century Boulevard between Sepulveda and La Cienega Boulevards. 

The plan establishes new guidelines for the streetscape on Century Boulevard including wider sidewalks, improved transit shelters, as well as new landscaping, decorative paving, lighting and street furniture to create public gathering places.

One goal of the plan is to enhance the visual aesthetics of Century Boulevard to help this gateway to Los Angeles become an economic asset to the region. The plan also aims to improve the pedestrian experience along Century Boulevard, including providing pedestrian connectivity to the Metro light rail line currently under construction, and the hotels and office buildings on the street.
