The ADA-compliant helical ramp structure, which is located near the center of the viaduct, will have a connection to both the westbound and eastbound bicycle lanes and sidewalks at the deck level. Using the ramp structure, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to connect from the ground level at Mission Road into the communities of Boyle Heights and the Arts District.
The helical ramp will also help connect the viaduct to the future 12-acre PARC under the viaduct, which will be located at ground level and include recreation and open spaces, connections to the LA River and more. The PARC will also include the Len Hill Arts Plaza, made possible by the generous support of the Leonard Hill family.
We envision the viaduct as a bridge that will not only provide multimodal opportunities between Boyle Heights and the Arts District, but will also connect people throughout the greater Los Angeles community.
