Jordan Downs Development

Location: Los Angeles, California

DEA provided civil engineering services for the design of Century Boulevard from Grape Street to Alameda Street (a distance of approximately 2,600 feet) as part of the Jordan Downs Redevelopment Project. Century Boulevard was undeveloped in this area, and DEA prepared new street improvement plans and profile drawings, sewer plans, water plans, streetlight plans, and traffic signal plans at the intersections of Century/Alameda Street. In addition, DEA prepared signing and striping plans, storm drain improvement plans, and planting and irrigation plans; coordinated for dry utility plans; prepared plans for conduits for future utilities; and incorporated “green” elements and structures.

The project was critical to the redevelopment of the Jordan Downs Community and required close coordination with multiple agencies. These agencies include the Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering (LABOE), the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), Council District #15 (CD#15), the Mayor’s Office, the Emergency Management Department (EMD), the General Education Development Department (GED), the Structural Engineering Division (SED), Social Security Disability Department (SSD), Bureau of Street Lighting (BSL), Bureau of Street Services (BSS), Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT), the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation (LABOS), and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). In addition, DEA coordinated community outreach efforts that were critical to communicate and share the proposed design with the local community and keep them informed of the project status.
