Esplanade getting a facelift - Redondo Beach

Redondo Beach officials met at the end of November for the ground breaking of the Esplanade upgrade project. At just under $3M in total costs, the improvements will include "seatwalls" for walkers to stop and enjoy the view. The street is to be repaved, plus upgrades to sidewalks, street art, seating and adding more landscaping are all planned.

Some safety additions are also being made to make the area more pedestrian and bike rider friendly. Less visible upgrades include gutter and storm drain improvements.

As originally reported by Eric Bradley of The Beach Reporter: Esplande Facelift Underway

"The city is primarily funding the project through a combination of federal, state and county money.

Federal dollars make up the largest portion at roughly $1.2 million. Another $800,000 is from Measure R, the half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2008, and California is pitching in about $400,000 from Proposition 1B, the transportation measure passed by state voters in 2006. Redondo Beach will contribute the rest, about $500,000.

Councilman Steve Aspel, who represents the area around The Esplanade, was commended for his “bulldog” efforts on behalf of the plan that has roots going back to 2001."
