Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

Investing in our Infrastructure

As we build toward a more sustainable, livable, and safe city, Los Angeles is investing in new infrastructure that will expand our transit system, protect our environment, build new jobs, and make it easier for everyone to get around town. To reach a future with less traffic and more transit, we are re-paving thousands of roads, modernizing LAX, expanding our public transit system, and rebuilding the 6th Street Viaduct.

Since Mayor Garcetti entered office, we have:

  • Paved 2,400 lane miles over the last year, the largest amount in city history. That’s equivalent to a street as wide as Wilshire Blvd running from Los Angeles to San Francisco. More information here.
  • Invested $8.5 billion in LAX to modernize each terminal, bring rail to the airport, and ease congestion, all while creating more than 40,000 construction-related jobs since 2007. Stay up-to-date with all the improvements at LAX at LAXisHappening.comMore information about the modernization here. More information about the LAMP Project here.
  • Helped Angelenos navigate L.A. more easily through our Street Wize app which combines everything from film permits to resurfacing on one easy-to-read map. More information here.
  • Started to rebuild the 6th Street Viaduct, which will soon become a new Los Angeles icon. More information here.
  • Connect our city by building out public transportation, from the Expo Line Phase 2 to the extension of the Purple Line Metro. More information here.
