Route[edit] One of the longer streets in the city, it runs in a north/south direction for more than 30 miles (48 km) between the neighborhoods of Wilmington and Eagle Rock of Los Angeles. The southern terminus is at Harry Bridges Boulevard in San Pedro, and its northern terminus at its interchange with the Ventura Freeway west of Pasadena, with a break between Alpine Street in Chinatown and San Fernando Road in Cypress Park. From its south end at Harry Bridges Boulevard to Downtown Los Angeles, Figueroa Street runs north parallel to the Harbor Freeway (Interstate 110) in South Los Angeles. The only portion of this segment of Figueroa Street that lies outside Los Angeles city limits is in the city of Carson. South of the Financial District, Figueroa Street services some popular locations including the University of Southern California, the Los Angeles Convention Center, and Staples Center/L.A. Live. After passing through downtown Los Angeles near Bunker Hill and South Park, Figueroa Street "ends" near the overcrossing of Sunset Boulevard over the Arroyo Seco Parkway (SR 110) before "resuming" at San Fernando Road in Cypress Park. An early routing of Figueroa Street in this area was originally part of U.S. Route 66, today a part of the Arroyo Seco Parkway. The noted Figueroa Street Tunnels were once a part of that same stretch of roadway. After resuming at San Fernando Road, Figueroa continues to run roughly parallel to the Arroyo Seco Parkway until it reaches York Boulevard in Highland Park. Afterwards, it heads north to its terminus with the Ventura Freeway. A short, unconnected "continuation" of Figueroa runs from just south of Linda Vista Road in Glendale to end at Chevy Chase Drive just over the city limit line in La Cañada Flintridge. Some of the southern termini was once part of U.S. Route 6 before its almost total decommissioning through California in 1964; indeed, Figueroa Street at Pacific Coast Highway was the actual western terminus of that highway,[citation needed] although some maps show that US 6 turned east on Pacific Coast Highway as far as Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach. Early maps produced by the Automobile Club of Southern California measured distances to Los Angeles from the club's headquarters at the intersection of Figueroa Street with Adams Boulevard.[1] On April 2, 2011, a portion of the street at Jefferson Boulevard was blocked off for the "Orange Carpet" and the grandstand for the broadcasting of the 2011 Kids' Choice Awards.


History[edit] Entrance of Grammy Museum at L.A. Live Figueroa was originally called Calle de los Chapules (or Grasshopper Street). Later in the 1880s it became known as "Pearl Street". The section of what is now Figueroa in Highland Park above Avenue 39 was known as "Pasadena Avenue" until Figueroa was extended through Elysian Park. The portion of what is now Figueroa between the Los Angeles River and Avenue 39 was originally known as Dayton Avenue until the Arroyo Parkway went through.[2]

Transportation[edit] Metro Local Line 81 bus stop at Figueroa and 65th Streets, Los Angeles, California. Metro Local Line 81 runs on Figueroa Street. The Metro Green Line operates a station underneath Interstate 105 at Figueroa Street. Metro Local Line 81 operates on Figueroa Street between Colorado Boulevard and Interstate 105 and Torrance Transit Line 1 between Interstate 105 and the Harbor Gateway Transit Center. The Metro Silver Line runs on Figueroa Street between 23rd and 6th Streets: Northbound Silver line trips to El Monte Bus Station continue north on Figueroa Street to serve the 7th Street / Metro Center and finally turn right on 6th street, leaving Figueroa Street. Southbound Silver Line trips to Harbor Gateway Transit Center run south on Flower Street from 5th Street to the Harbor Transitway. There are 5 Silver line street stops served in the northbound direction: Figueroa/23rd, Figueroa/Washington, Figueroa/Pico, Figueroa/Olympic and Figueroa/7th. In addition, there are 5 Metro Silver Line Stations served on the Harbor Transitway close to Figueroa Street: 37th Street/USC, Slauson, Manchester, Harbor Freeway, and Rosecrans. The Harbor Transitway is located on the I-110 freeway, between Figueroa Street and Broadway. The Lincoln/Cypress Station for the Metro Gold Line on Avenue 26 at its intersection with Lacy Street is about a 5-minute walk from Figueroa Street.


"My Figueroa" Development Plan and 2028 Summer Olympics[edit] The Figueroa Corridor Streetscape project is a city led effort to beautify and improve the boulevard by adding pedestrian friendly amenities. The project begins on 7th street in Downtown Los Angeles, by Staples Center and terminates at Exposition Park at USC. The projects aims to improve transit and pedestrian access, protected bike lanes totally protected by physical barriers, a more organized and efficient street by adding better signalization and signage, high-visibility crosswalks, transit platforms, more street trees, public art and wider sidewalks. The $20 million Figueroa Corridor Streetscape project is funded by a Proposition 1C grant.[3] After delays, work was expected to commence in the summer of 2016[4] and was expected to be completed by March 2017, when the prop 1C grant expires. [5] The Los Angeles 2028 organizing committee plan to use this corridor as a planned "Live Site", an area dedicated as a central pedestrian corridor, linking all of the Downtown LA venues together during the 2028 Olympic & Paralympic Games.
