Today marked the beginning of the construction phase for Washington Boulevard Project in the City of Commerce with a $30 million construction cost. Transtech will serve as the Construction Manager of the project.
The Washington Blvd Project will provide significant improvements and benefits both locally and regionally within the Gateway Cities Region with improved traffic control measures, reduced traffic delays, and beautification to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of Commerce, commuters and the surrounding communities.
The project involves the reconstruction and widening of a 2.7 mile segment of Washington Blvd to 6 lanes between Indiana St to the Santa Ana (I-5) Freeway within the City of Commerce. The project will improve traffic flow and level of service by reducing delays while improving the overall air quality. Enhanced ADA compliant sidewalks for pedestrian use, raised landscaped medians, and parkways along the corridor with LED energy saving street lights to increase pedestrian and vehicle safety are part of the project plans.
This project is a local and regional priority for the County of Los Angeles, and is funded by the City of Commerce, FHWA (Federal Highway Administration), CTC (California Transportation Commission), and Metro (Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority). Additional agency partners include Caltrans (California Department of Transportation), SCAG (Southern California Association of Governments), and Los Angeles County.
