The City of Hawthorne held a ribbon cutting ceremony last week for the Hawthorne Boulevard Mobility Improvement Project. Metro provided approximately $10.5 million towards the project through 2009 Call for Projects and Measure R.
The project broke ground in 2013 and was one of the projects selected for “First Five Years” funding in the South Bay’s Measure R Highway Program. The Hawthorne Boulevard Mobility Improvement Project improves traffic circulation along Hawthorne Blvd. from El Segundo Boulevard to Rosecrans Avenue by enhancing left-turn storage, widening and modifying existing medians and installing bow-outs. The project also provides a Class II bicycle lane, upgraded pedestrian crossing signals and improved signalization along Hawthorne Blvd.
