The Port has identified critical new supporting projects that provide continuity in purpose and vision with the original prioritized projects in the Port’s Public Access Investment Plan.  These projects are critical to the Port’s strategy of building public access infrastructure that increases visitors to the LA Waterfront, and increases investment from private developers. 

These projects connect LA Waterfront attractions and improve the public’s experience at the LA Waterfront.  Supporting projects include three in transportation, three in amenities and two related to infrastructure.

Transportation Projects

Harbor Blvd. Improvements

Harbor Blvd. Improvements

  • This project continues the completed Harbor Blvd. and 7th St. Intersection Improvement Project by extending improvements to the San Pedro Slip, further south to 22nd Street and west along 22nd Street.
  • This project is critical to connect waterfront attractions like CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles, AltaSea and the San Pedro Public Market. 
  • Cost: $19.0M
Signal Street Improvements

Signal Street Improvements

  • The Signal St. Improvements Project is located alongside AltaSea, a developing 35-acre marine research and innovation campus.  The improvements include the street, curb and gutter, lighting, overhead power relocation and a new fiber network.
  • This street improvement benefits AltaSea as they will be investing $105 million over the next 10 years in the 100-year-old, 475,000 square feet of historic Warehouse No. 1, a potential future LA Waterfront private development opportunity site. 
  • Cost: $6.2M
B 200 Roadway Extension

B 200 Roadway Extension

  • This transportation project is critical for public access to the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade and Avalon Gateway and Promenade Projects. 
  • This project improves 4,000 square feet of existing adjacent roadway and creates 3,000 square feet of new road from the Wilmington Waterfront east to Henry Ford Ave.  This project provides additional safety access for the area and removes traffic conflicts between visitors and trucks.
  • Instead of bisecting the Wilmington Waterfront through the realigned Water Street to get to the South Wilmington Grade Separation, the B 200 Roadway Extension diverts trucks from Vopak, WWL, and any potential project at Berths 191-194 toward the east, away from the Wilmington Waterfront. 
  • Cost: $5.6M

Amenities Projects

Wilmington Youth Sailing Center

Wilmington Youth Sailing Center

  • This project is an important activator of the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade Project. 
  • It consists of 3,800 square feet of community building with 8,000 square feet boat storage area, boat hoist and gangway. 
  • This amenity provides water activity in Wilmington and along with a potential food and beverage provider opportunity, and serves as an initial attraction to activate the public plazas and gathering areas of the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade Project. 
  • Cost: $3.1M
Ferry Building Public Landing

Ferry Building Public Landing

  • This landing is an important activating amenity that supports the Town Square Project. 
  • The new landing will bring increased water activity and public use in a currently underutilized area adjacent to the Town Square.
  • Cost: $2.1M
Town Square Public Restrooms

Town Square Public Restrooms

  • This project includes four single-use stalls, exterior sinks, janitor area and surrounding landscaping.

  • Cost: $5.0M
Electrical Upgrades
