Beverly Hills officials Tuesday announced the launch of a project to build a streetscape to complement two new Metro subway stations that will open in 2023 and 2025, respectively.
The city says the project will build on an ongoing effort to make the streets more inviting by improving landscaping, lighting and bus shelters.
“Connect Beverly Hills is an opportunity to promote the new Metro stations as destinations that are uniquely Beverly Hills,” Mayor Lester Friedman said. “The plan will improve accessibility and enhance the overall experience for people traveling to our city along these two historically significant corridors.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, city officials are taking input from the public online. Residents who want to play a role in making the streets more walkable, and finding other ways to accommodate a significant increase in pedestrian activity along the two major corridors by the time the stations open, can give their ideas at connect.beverlyhills.org.
The stations are planned for the intersections of Wilshire Boulevard and La Cienega Boulevard, and Wilshire and Rodeo Drive.
