How will the investment in the Sixth Street Viaduct improve goods movement from the local area? How will it improve mobility in the area?

A:

The new viaduct design removes the “kink” that exists in the existing viaduct. Fixing this geometric deficiency will provide increased safety and better goods movement on the viaduct. The intersection improvements will provide new turn lanes, signaling, and striping around the viaduct, which will assist the movement of large trucks in the area.

The new viaduct will improve bicycle and pedestrian transportation with wider sidewalks, dedicated bicycle lanes, and dedicated pedestrian and bicycle ramps on either side of the viaduct. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has proposed a new rail station at Sixth Street just near the new viaduct, which would dramatically increase public transportation connectivity to the viaduct and the surrounding areas.
