Earlier today, the City of El Segundo held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Measure R Maple Avenue highway project. The project was fully funded by Measure R to the tune of $2.5 million and came in $350,000 under budget. The project improves access to the I-105 from Sepulveda Blvd. and relieves congestion at the intersection of Sepulveda and Imperial for commuters and residents.

This is the first ribbon-cutting for a Measure R project in the South Bay, the the South Bay Cities Council of Governments is looking forward to the completion of more highway improvements in South Bay cities that have been funded by Measure R.

  1. I’m glad to see that you are showcasing stories like these to show that other cities outside the LA city limits are getting money from a COUNTWIDE initiative. Opponents to the measure are always saying that its only improving Los Angeles and the rich west side, but in fact for those who don’t know the region or is complexity, the City of LA is the county seat of government for LA County and also the major city-hub of the LA-Long Beach-Santa Ana metropolitan statistical area. A lot of the improvement projects currently under construction or design being made by Metro in Downtown will have a tremendous positive effect on our region as a whole.

    I have been blessed in being able to travel to major metropolis around the world, to include our rivals in NYC, but also in London, Madrid, Paris, Berlin and even to Dubai and Qatar, and can say with certainty we have fallen way behind in our infrastructure investment and we are finally making it right. Yes, Metro has done some poor planning, but members of the general public haven’t helped either. This project, and many more that are coming online through out the county, are an example and showcase how important it is to invest in the central city and the rewards our outlying suburbs/cities receive.

    And, as a side note, I live in Apple Valley, about 88 miles northeast of DTLA, in the High Desert of San Bernadino and rely heavily on Metro investments through out the county, especially with the upcoming Gold Line Foothill extension.

    Keep doing an awesome job Metro!
