Project Update: Reseda Blvd Complete Streets
After three years of construction beginning in October 2020, the Reseda Blvd Complete Streets Project is nearing completion. This multi-agency initiative aims to transform Reseda Blvd between Parthenia St and Victory Blvd with extensive safety improvements.
Transformation milestones include the completion of sidewalk, driveway, and curb ramp repairs, mid-block accessible passenger loading zone ramps, and bus boarding islands. Construction is estimated to conclude this winter.

Crews are also working to complete upgrades to traffic signals on Reseda Blvd, including new left turn arrows (protected left turns) at 8 locations. These new signals will provide a separate light for drivers turning left, protecting pedestrians and reducing the chances of a collision.
If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail the Bureau of Engineering at Eng.Reseda@lacity.org
