Rosecrans Ave. to be Widened in the City of Manhattan Beach

The Board of Supervisors approved a project that will widen Rosecrans Avenue from Douglas Street to 300 feet west of Aviation Boulevard in the City of Manhattan Beach, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.

This project is part of a larger overall project to widen the entire intersection at Aviation Boulevard and Rosecrans Avenue, which will also include moving the overhead utilities in the area. The County’s contribution to the project will be approximately $300,000 and will come from the Fourth Supervisorial District’s Road Construction Program.

Today’s unanimous vote by the Board of Supervisors approves the joint financing and construction agreement between the County and the City of Manhattan Beach needed to complete the project.

By widening this street, both the residents of Manhattan Beach and the nearby unincorporated County areas that travel on Rosecrans Avenue will benefit, said Supervisor Knabe.
