City to Repave Streets with Fed Funds  

By Lookout Staff

March 1, 2010 -- More than six miles of streets across Santa Monica will be repaved using funds from the federal government’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

City officials believe the $787 billion Recovery package -- which was passed by Congress to help jump-start the economy will create or save some 20 jobs.

The paving projects include pavement resurfacing, re-striping, and sidewalk, curb, and gutter repairs. The work should be completed in June.

Streets scheduled for improvements include the following:

  • Santa Monica Boulevard from Cloverfield Boulevard to Centinela Avenue;
  • San Vicente Boulevard from Ocean Avenue to 7th Street;
  • 26th Street from Carlyle Avenue to Montana Avenue;
  • Montana Avenue from 17th Street to 26th Street;


  • Broadway Avenue from 12th Street to 16th Street, from 20th Street to 21st Street, and from Cloverfield Boulevard to 26th Street;
  • Lincoln Boulevard from Colorado Avenue to the I-10 overpass;
  • Colorado Avenue from 20th Street to 26th Street;
  • Olympic Boulevard from Palm Court to Lincoln Boulevard;
  • Ocean Avenue from Pico Boulevard to Hollister Street;
  • Ocean Park Boulevard from Lincoln Boulevard to 25th Street;
  • Barnard Way from Ocean Park Boulevard to Neilson Way;
  • Highland Avenue from Pier Avenue to the south City limits, and
  • Marine Street from Highland Avenue to Lincoln Boulevard.

The federally-funded projects are being managed by the City of Santa Monica Public Works Department. For more information, visit Public Works' "Know Before You Go" at or call the Project Hotline at (866) 755-7679.
