Culver City Dedicates Jefferson Boulevard Improvements Project [Video]

Mayor Andy Weissman and Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas were among those on hand to dedicate the new pedestrian and bicycle access improvements at Hetzler Rd. on Friday morning.

It’s taken just under six months for the City of Culver City to complete its Jefferson Blvd. Improvements project at Hetzler Road.

On Friday morning, the City held a dedication ceremony for the improvements that include:

  • A traffic signal with a high visibility crosswalk at the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Hetzler Road
  • Curb extensions at the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Hetzler Road
  • Sidewalks filling the gap in existing sidewalks on Jefferson Boulevard near the entrance to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook
  • Raised landscaped median islands (approx. 250 feet total length) on Jefferson Boulevard near the entrance to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook
  • Bike lanes from near Duquesne Avenue to Holdrege Avenue
  • Parking lot improvements (approximately 10 parking spaces) and bike racks

Among those who spoke at the event were Mayor Andy Weissman, 2nd District Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Chairman of the Baldwin Hills Conservancy Allan Kingston and District Superintendent for California State Parks, Craig Sap (see video).

Funding for the project was provided by a grant from the Baldwin Hills Conservancy, with 25 percent of matching funds from the City of Culver City.

Mayor Weissman. Supervisor Ridley-Thomas and Superintendent Sap all said they hoped the new traffic signal and crosswalk would stop visitors parking opposite the entrance to the Overlook, from jaywalking.
