Project Information

Market Street Improvements Map

The $11 Million Market Street Pedestrian and Streetscape Enhancements project implements corridor-wide improvements along Market Street (between the LA River and 800 feet of Cherry Avenue). Originally identified in the North LB Street Enhancement Master Plan, the project also includes proposed recommendations from the North LB Walkability Plan. The project seeks to improve the overall mobility, safety, and built environment along the roughly 2.2-mile corridor for the North Long Beach community. Improving the streets and active transportation infrastructure will create a safer, healthier, better connected, and more inclusive Long Beach.

The project focuses on re-envisioning streets that support people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, while creating connections to neighborhood parks, churches, and schools. The project also aims to prevent traffic-related fatalities, shape safer streets, provide equitable active transport, and promote healthy communities.
