Median Island Improvements for the Beautification of Hawthorne Blvd. from Del Amo Blvd. to Torrance Blvd.

Engineering Manager:  John Dettle, P.E.
Project Manager: Jeff Kidd, P.E.

Project Description:  Hawthorne Boulevard is the major commercial and transportation corridor for the City as well as the South Bay region. In Torrance, Hawthorne Boulevard spans approximately eight miles and is the widest and most heavily traveled arterial, carrying over 50,000 vehicles per day. 

The project area is Hawthorne Boulevard between Del Amo Boulevard and Torrance Boulevard.  Currently, the existing medians are covered with asphalt and do not have any landscaping. This project will beautify the existing medians with new landscaping including irrigation, hardscape and signage.
