Milton Green Street Project

The Project will transform a traditional asphalt street into a Green Street that will serve as a demonstration of sustainable multi-purpose infrastructure with both environmental and community benefits.  It will include the planting of California native trees and shrubs alongside the installation of Vegetated Stormwater Curb Extensions (VSCEs).  Also a new sidewalk including ADA curb cuts, with a crosswalk connecting Marina Del Rey Middle School (MDRMS) to the adjacent Natural Park.

The Project will construct:

  • More than 10 VSCE’s located along Northern and Southern sides of Milton Street
  • New sidewalk with ADA curb cuts on the Southern side of the street for pedestrian access to Ballona Creek and Milton Park
  • New Smart irrigation, solar panels, and controller
