Shortly after the groundbreaking of a massive redevelopment project focused on downtown Long Beach’s Pine Avenue, the east-meets-west arterial that is Redondo Avenue broke ground on a $2.2M street improvement plan that stretches from the 2nd to the 4th District.
One of the stretch’s largest intersections—Redondo and Broadway, home to one of Broadway’s most beloved hub of businesses—will install concrete bulb-outs and what was described as “enhanced crosswalks.” The crosswalks could be simple international-style paint or could be the cobblestone-style crosswalks that 7th Street received in its improvement development last year.
The intersection will also receive a new stop light. Additionally, 122 tons of diverted and recycled material—ranging from sand and asphalt to concrete, rock, and recycled waste ash—will provide a new but sustainable road surface on Redondo between 2nd Street and Anaheim Street.
The project, expected to be completed in May, was funded through Prop C, passed by county voters in 1990.
