SR-2 Terminus Project

Project Overview

The Glendale Freeway (SR-2) was originally planned and constructed in 1959 to connect with the Hollywood Freeway (US-101) through the neighborhoods of Silver Lake and Echo Park. In 1962, as a result of local community opposition, the full build-out plan was rescinded and construction was terminated at the present SR-2 terminus near Glendale Boulevard and Duane Street. Since then, commuter traffic coming of and on to SR-2 has passed through the community, primarily along Glendale Bl and Alvarado St and has contributed to congestion. A Federal Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) and a High Priority Highway Project Authorization grant were provided to upgrade the southern terminus of SR-2 and help manage the flow of traffic and address safety concerns
The purpose of this project is to develop a balanced transportation system that better serves local and regional transportation needs through improved management of traffic flow; enhanced pedestrian and non-motorized accessibility and safety at the SR-2 terminus; and creation of a context sensitive designed community open space in the immediate vicinity
