Reseda Blvd Construction Update - Jan 2021
In October 2020, construction began on the $19.5 million Reseda Blvd Complete Streets Project. This multi-agency project will transform Reseda Blvd between Parthenia St and Victory Blvd with pavement rehabilitation and roadway safety improvements, including:
- Sidewalk, driveway, and curb ramp repairs
- Street resurfacing
- Traffic signal upgrades
- Bus boarding islands
- Street trees
- New continuous protected bicycle lane
Construction will extend for approximately 28 months, with the first year dedicated to concrete work on curb ramps, sidewalks, and driveways.
Overall Project Timeline (approximate dates, subject to change)
Over the past few months, City of LA crews have been actively working on the west side of the street between Bryant St and Ingomar St, reconstructing portions of the sidewalk and driveways in greatest need of repair, rebuilding corner curb ramps to meet current accessibility standards, and rebuilding broken curbs and gutters. The result will be safer, smoother surfaces for people walking, rolling, and driving on Reseda Blvd. As of January 2021, crews have completed these elements between Bryant St and Ingomar St, and have started on the segment between Ingomar St and Keswick St. Crews will return to these segments in 2022-2023 to install the other project elements such as signals, bus boarding islands, trees, and lighting. Note that at intersections where changes to the traffic signals are planned, corner curb ramps will be upgraded later, at the same time that the signal work is completed.

Through Spring 2021, sidewalk construction activity will continue progressing southward, on the west side of the street. You can continue to expect intermittent sidewalk and driveway closures and temporary parking restrictions in this area. Please be mindful of the work crews - we appreciate your patience as we work to improve this street!
