Project Background

Why Move Culver City?

Move Culver City is implementing the vision set forth in the City’s TOD Visioning Plan (adopted in 2017) & the Bicycle and Pedestrian Action Plan to implement holistic transportation options for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders. ​​​To do this, Culver City Transportation Department is looking to implement three Tactical Mobility Lane Pilot Projects through the quick-build process in three different phases: 

Phase 1: Tactical Mobility Lane on Washington Boulevard

Phase 2: Tactical Mobility Lane on Sepulveda Boulevard

Phase 3: Tactical Mobility Lane on Jefferson Boulevard

Culver City does not have the ability to add new capacity by widening roadways. Instead, we need to make our roadways more efficient by prioritizing high occupancy modes such as transit and promote sustainable transportation modes like walking and bicycling to ensure that we can continue to grow and leverage current and future transportation investments, including the Expo Line, bikeshare, scooter-share and microtransit. These pilot projects will serve as the opportunity for Culver City to learn how the permanent infrastructure improvement would work and demonstrate the benefits of such infrastructure to maximize the use of the roadway.  

Who is Involved?

The community’s input is vital to the development of the Move Culver City project!

The project team will be seeking input on the project’s design through multiple design workshops over the next couple of months. The project team will also meet regularly with the Mobility, Traffic, and Parking Subcommittee, comprised of various municipal and county agency staff, and its Community Project Advisory Committee (CPAC). The CPAC is comprised of residents, advocates, and other stakeholders, that will provide ongoing feedback and direction throughout the Design Alternatives and Development phases.

City Council is fully supportive of the project and has directed the City to plan and implement tactical mobility lane pilot projects.
