CD+A Selected for Santa Monica LiNCJune 12, 2014 CD+A has been selected to lead a team to create the Lincoln Neighborhood Corridor Plan (the LiNC) in Santa Monica. Lincoln Boulevard south of the I-10 Freeway is a busy commercial corridor connecting Downtown Santa Monica to surrounding communities. The LiNC project seeks to improve vehicular flow and transition this important regional north/south thoroughfare to a more pedestrian-friendly and local-serving neighborhood boulevard based on community and stakeholder input. The project will create phased plans for physical treatments such as sidewalk, street, and crosswalk improvements, lane configurations, landscaping, potential urban runoff mitigation opportunities, street furniture, gateway design, shared parking and wayfinding. The project will also identify a business improvement toolkit to enhance the vitality of local-serving commercial uses along the boulevard for the local community and address the need for beautification to enhance the character and quality of the boulevard. Last, the project will evaluate transit enhancements to improve ridership of the Big Blue Bus, including the re-consideration of a dedicated bus lane.
CD+A's previous work in Santa Monica include the adopted Bergamot Area Plan and ongoing Memorial Park Neighborhood Plan. We are excited to continue our collaboration with City staff as well as our expert team of local subconsultants, which includes Studio One Eleven, Urban Place Consulting and Iteris.
