The city of Santa Monica and Ocean Park Association marked the ceremonial grand opening of the complete “green” street along Ocean Park Boulevard, between Nielson Way and Lincoln Boulevard Feb. 9.
Thanks to new improvements, including a light green-painted path, cyclists have a designated route to ride on Ocean Park between the beach and the main thoroughfare in Santa Monica.
Among other street enhancements are wider sidewalks, a drip irrigation system, new marked crosswalks with enhanced overhead flashing beacons, bike racks, new landscaping, traffic signal improvements and Los Amigos Park storm drain improvements.
In addition, over 100 new trees were planted, along with the installation of street furniture, trash and recycling cans, and 75 pedestrian-scaled light poles.
The green street project, partly funded by Measure V, was designed to create a better performing, enhanced streetscape environment that is pedestrian- and bicycle-oriented, attractive, green, and provides several environmental benefits, city officials said. The grand opening celebration included live jazz, bicycle demonstrations and a bike ride down the green lanes by bicycle advocacy group Santa Monica Spoke.
