Road crews will close all lanes of a roughly three-mile stretch of La Cienega Boulevard between Stocker Street and Obama Boulevard over the next three weekends to build a 440-foot pedestrian and wildlife bridge overpass.
The bridge will link the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook and Stoneview Nature Center to the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area as part of the 13-mile Park to Playa Trail project.
Onsite parking at the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area will also be shut down to accommodate construction. Closures will begin at 9 p.m. Friday and end at 5 a.m. Monday on June 12-15, 19-22 and 26-29.
Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said the bridge marks the final stages of work on the 13-mile Park to Playa Trail, set to be completed this fall.
“Placement of the bridge over La Cienega Boulevard is a tangible sign to the community that this long-awaited, highly-anticipated project is near completion,” he said.
The project links trails, parks and open spaces including the Baldwin Hills Parklands, Stocker Corridor, Norman Houston Park, Ruben Ingold Park and Culver City Park to Ballona Creek, the Ballona Wetlands and the Marvin Braude Bike Trail along the Pacific Ocean.
