History[edit] Crenshaw Boulevard was named Angeles Mesa Drive until 1904, when the street was named after banker and Los Angeles real estate developer George Lafayette Crenshaw who also developed the affluent Lafayette Square.[2][3]


Overview[edit] The street starts at Wilshire Boulevard in Hancock Park and runs through several demographically diverse areas to end in Rolling Hills. In the early 1900s there were tracks for the 5 Line streetcar line[4] in the 1920s through 1950s ran down the median between Leimert Boulevard[5] on the north to near Florence Ave on the south. Since the abandonment of the streetcars, the former railway median has been narrowed, the driving lanes were improved and the street reconfigured for specifically automobiles. Many local residents were disappointed to see 71 mature street-line trees chopped down to make way for the Space Shuttle Endeavour to be moved from LAX to the California Science Center in nearby Exposition Park. Crenshaw makes the eastern boundary through the City of Gardena, Torrance, & Hawthorne. Revitalization Project[edit] Additional trees were removed for the under construction Crenshaw/LAX Line, but various officials have promised an aesthetically cohesive new revitilized boulevard with more trees being planted than were removed. The project will also feature bike lanes, wider sidewalks, new Metro bus stops, street furniture with LED traffic lights and street lights.[6][7]


Transportation[edit] Main articles: Metro Local, Green Line (Los Angeles Metro), and Expo Line (Los Angeles Metro) Metro Local[edit] Metro Local lines 40 and 210, Metro Rapid lines 710 and 740, and Torrance Transit line 10 serve Crenshaw Boulevard; Metro lines 210 and 710 run through the majority of Crenshaw Boulevard to Artesia Boulevard, Metro lines 40 and 740 from Crenshaw District to Hyde Park, and Torrance Transit line 10 south of Artesia Boulevard. The Metro Green Line serves the Crenshaw station on Crenshaw Boulevard underneath Interstate 105, while the Metro Expo Line runs along Exposition Blvd and serves Expo/Crenshaw station at the intersection with Exposition Boulevard. In the Crenshaw district, Crenshaw Boulevard and Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza are served primarily by LADOT trolleys, buses and soon a light rail subway line with four Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus lines: Metro Local Line 40 - South Bay Galleria - Patsaouras Transit Plaza via Martin Luther King Boulevard and Hawthorne Boulevard Metro Local Line 210 - South Bay Galleria - Hollywood/Vine Red Line Station via Crenshaw Boulevard, Rossmore Avenue, and Vine Street Metro Rapid Line 710 - South Bay Galleria - Wilshire/Western Purple Line Station via Redondo Beach Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard Metro Rapid Line 740 - South Bay Galleria - Inglewood Transit Center - Expo/Crenshaw Station Crenshaw Boulevard is also briefly served in the Crenshaw district by the following LACMTA lines: Metro Local Line 102 - LAX City Bus Center to Huntington Park via La Tijera Boulevard, Stocker Street, Exposition Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard Metro Local Line 105 / Rapid Line 705 - West Hollywood - Vernon via La Cienega Boulevard, Rodeo Road, and Vernon Avenue LADOT[edit] Crenshaw Boulevard is also briefly served in the LADOT by the following LADOT Dash lines: LADOT Crenshaw- Stocker and Coliseum via La Brea LADOT Leimert Park/Slauson- Down King Boulevard via Crenshaw Blvd. LADOT Midtown- Down Crenshaw Blvd.


Transit expansion[edit] The Crenshaw/LAX Line is currently under construction. It will transport passengers from the existing Expo/Crenshaw station to the planned Aviation/96th Street station and Metro Green Line stations.[8] It is projected to be completed in early 2019.
