MyFigueroa is starting construction in October!

by LADOT  |  
September 15, 2016

We are pleased to announce that LADOT has signed a contract with All American Asphalt as the builder for the MyFigueroa streetscape project, and construction on MyFigueroa is right around the corner – breaking ground in October, 2016!

We will provide more specific updates on the construction schedule in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here are some construction details to help you better understand what to expect:

Traffic lane closures and sidewalk closures, when needed, will be limited to the hours between 9:00am and 3:00pm Monday through Friday. There may be limited construction on Saturdays later in the construction process, but LADOT considers it unlikely at this time. No work is expected to be scheduled for Sundays.

There may be limited night construction (7:00pm to 6:00am) in the future. This would expedite completion of the project, though it is not expected at this time. In the case that night construction is deemed necessary, there will be an opportunity for community input prior to scheduling.

Some areas of this project will likely be affected by the City's Holiday Season Street Closure Restrictions (Thanksgiving to New Year's Day). Each year, the City of Los Angeles prohibits street closures and construction in specific areas to avoid disruption to the holiday shopping season. This year, the moratorium dates are from November 21st, 2016 until midnight on January 1, 2017. Construction along Figueroa St. north of Olympic Blvd. will likely be suspended during this period.

See the Resources section of our website for a media kit of digital flyers and other materials with more information. Help us spread the word that MyFig is coming soon!

Bike Month is here, and it's time to think about what it will be like to bike on MyFigueroa, Downtown LA's first protected bike lane.

That's right! Construction on the long awaited MyFig project will be starting soon in 2016, bringing safety improvements for bicycle and transit users and a better Figueroa for us all. (more info here)

Stay tuned for updates on MyFig construction, and in the meantime, Let's Fig Out different ways to get around Figueroa outside of our cars.

FIg Out a Bike Route: This Thursday May 19 is Bike to Work Day. If you're biking near Fig, stop at LACBC's South LA Pit Stop at MLK Blvd and Vermont (the southeastern edge of the MyFigueroa project).

Fig Out Expo: This Friday, May 20 is Metro's Expo Line Phase 2 grand opening. For the first time in 60 years, Angelenos will be able to ride a train from Downtown LA to the beach in Santa Monica! Hop on the Metro Expo Line Downtown or near USC, where it runs just one block east of the MyFigueroa project. See how MyFigueroa will connect with Metro to give Angelenos more options for getting around.
