Public Works Projects

Under the guidance of the City Council and through engagement with community members, the Culver City Public Works Department works on projects that enhance and maintain Culver City’s infrastructure, including roads, bike paths, sewers, our urban forest, and more. This page outlines recent projects that the Public Works has been working on to make Culver City an enjoyable place to live and a desirable destination for business and recreation.

Ballona Creek Connection Project

As part of the ongoing Ballona Creek Revitalization Project, Public Works completed the Park to Playa - Ballona Creek Connection Project that added a bridge between Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook State Park and Culver City Gateway. 

Ballona Creek now offers improved trails, signage and an accessible trail. A new bicycle lane with a smooth surface free of rocks and tree roots also now runs from the top of Culver City Park to Duquense Avenue connecting cyclists to the Ballona Creek Bike Path.

The City Council adopted the Ballona Creek Revitalization Project in 2016 and reinstated its priority to improve the watershed in its 2018-2023 Strategic Plan (webpage). The project is meant to help the community have better access to Ballona Creek, making it more sustainable, walkable, bikeable, and better connected.

Visit the City’s Ballona Creek webpage to learn more about the bike path, murals, annual cleanup, and revitalization project.

Colonial Avenue Alley Paving Project

The Colonia Avenue Alley Paving Project repaved an alley east of Colonial Avenue, between Washington Place and Washington Boulevard, that was in poor condition. The alley’s pavement was cracked and had dips, collecting ponds of water that further deteriorated the ground, making it unfit for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. After repaving, the 700-foot-long alley is now a smooth passageway that properly drains rainwater and is safe for cars, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Traffic Signal Construction at Washington Boulevard and Cattaraugus Avenue

Public Works recently installed new traffic signals and crosswalks at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Cattaraugus Avenue to enhance public safety and mobility. Each crosswalk features walking surface indicators that alert individuals who are visually impaired to the street they are approaching.
