Project Information

The Studebaker Corridor Complete Street Project implements corridor-wide infrastructure improvements along Studebaker Road, from 2nd Street to Carson Street. The project seeks to improve the overall mobility, safety, and operational efficiency along the approximate 5-mile corridor.

The project seeks to provide a safe, robust active transportation network in an area that is currently only safely navigable by car for most people. This area contains several regional destinations, including Long Beach City College, CSULB, McBride High School, Sato Academy of Math and Science, Tincher Prep School, El Dorado Park and Library, Alamitos Bay, and the new 2nd and PCH retail development. Improving the road for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers will create a safer, healthier, better connected, and more inclusive Long Beach.

The intersection at Los Coyotes Diagonal will be reconfigured to provide several safety and accessibility benefits, including shortened pedestrian crossing distances, wider sidewalks near McBride High School, addition of permeable surfaces and urban greening, sidewalk-level bikeways and protected intersections with new connections to pathways at Heartwell Park and the San Gabriel River, and tighter vehicle turns that require slower speeds.
