Whittier Blvd’s New ‘Skyline’ In Progress

The $2.1 million revitalization project is underway in East Los Angeles.

By EGP News Report

All the palm trees along one side of Whittier Boulevard in East Los Angeles have been removed to make room for fancier palms that will be planted under the Whittier Boulevard Streetscape Project. The project began in June and will continue into January 2012 with a hiatus in construction during the holidays.

The project along the commercial corridor extends one-mile from Burger Avenue to Atlantic Boulevard and will include decorative street lighting, monument clocks, bus shelters, benches, colored crosswalks, bike racks, curb ramps and trash receptacles, as well as sidewalk repairs. Construction crews are doing the project in phases to reduce the impact to businesses and traffic.

Juan M. Sarda is the project’s community liaison and is available Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to answer questions and help resolve construction related issues. Sarda can be reached at (626) 476-0985.
