Downtown Culver City will be looking different for the foreseeable future, with temporary barricades redirecting traffic to create space for people to enjoy a meal out, take a safe stroll, or expand their horizons.
On June 9th, the City Council approved temporary street closures in Downtown Culver City to support existing businesses during the current COVID-19 pandemic and to spur economic recovery.
The approved street closures include westbound Culver Boulevard between Duquesne Avenue and Canfield Avenue, as well as Main Street between Culver Boulevard and the City limits south of Venice Boulevard. A dedicated, shared bus/bike lane will also be available along Culver Boulevard to promote mobility to and through the area. Several businesses are expanding into the street to provide a safe and physically-distanced expanded outdoor dining and shopping experience.
Implementation of the street closures began on July 23 and will be completed by the end of today, July 28, 2020.
The weekly Farmers Market will continue to be located on Main Street and takes place every Tuesday (rain or shine!) from 2 PM – 7 PM. The plans were prepared in coordination with the Downtown Business Association, the City Manager, and staff from the Community Development; Public Works; Transportation; Fire and Police Departments.
