Los Angeles Harbor Boulevard Open for Business

By Karen Robes Meeks

Port of Los Angeles and civic leaders on Thursday feted the newly finished $15.6 million Harbor Boulevard Roadway Improvements Project in San Pedro, California.

Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino, Los Angeles Harbor Commission President Jaime Lee and Harbor Commissioner Anthony Pirozzi were on hand to celebrate the completion of the street realignment project, designed to make the road safer and more efficient for vehicles and pedestrians. The project also makes the Los Angeles waterfront more accessible to the public. It features a refurbished Plaza Park and new hillside landscaping along Miner Street.

“This project exemplifies the Port’s commitment to our Public Access Investment Plan, which has allocated about $400 million in capital for LA Waterfront public access projects,” Lee said. “Next up we’ll begin investing almost $33 million on a new town square at 6th Street and a waterfront promenade in front of the future San Pedro Public Market.”
