Soto Street Bridge over Mission Road Huntington Drive Project
Date: Thursday, August 1st, 2013
Community Briefing and Workshop
Place: Rose Hill Recreation Center
4530 Mercury Avenue, Los Angeles, 90032
You are invited to a Community Briefing regarding the Soto Street Bridge over Mission Road and Huntington Drive Project. The briefing is scheduled for Thursday, August 1st at 6 p.m., held at the Rose Hill Recreation Center (4530 Mercury, Los Angeles 90032). The purpose of the meeting is to share updates, construction status, and scheduling on the upcoming project.
The Soto Street Bridge over Mission Road and Huntington Drive Project would remove the Soto Street Bridge, currently extended between Supreme Court and Turquoise Street. The proposed project would reconfigure the streets along Mission Road, Soto Street, Huntington Drive North, and Huntington Drive South to provide major north-south traffic movement on Mission Road and Huntington Drive North. A signalized intersection would be constructed at the intersection at Mission Road and Soto Street, and at the existing intersection at Huntington Drive North and Huntington Drive South.
Two new frontage roads with cul-de-sacs will be constructed for local street access, and the resulting median area between Mission Road and Huntington Drive North would be improved with trees and landscaping. The project was initiated by the City of Los Angeles Council District 14, Department of Public Works, Bureau of Engineering, Bridge Improvement Division.
