Long Beach Receives Grant Terminal Island Freeway
LONG BEACH— On, Oct. 22, Caltrans awarded the City of Long Beach a $225,000 environmental justice grant to begin developing a vision for transforming the Terminal Island Freeway into a local-serving road with an adjacent landscape buffer.
The landscape buffer would separate port and industrial uses from the residential and neighborhood uses, between Pacific Coast Highway and West Willow Street.
A series of public workshops and meetings will be scheduled to solicit input and help identify a comprehensive vision for the re-purposing of the Terminal Island freeway.
