These days, it’s so bright inside the Sepulveda Tunnel you could almost land a plane here!
The improved lighting is part of a beautification project underneath the southern runways at Los Angeles International Airport that was
years decades in the making.
We first told you about efforts to replace old, outdated light fixtures with new, brighter LED lights in this blog post.
Councilmember Bill Rosendahl announced the long awaited, state of the art, $3.5 million Sepulveda Tunnel retrofitting project last September. The plans promised to better illuminate the road with energy efficient LED lighting.
Now that the lighting portion of the project is complete, the council office is now working to make sure a Memorandum of Understanding is fulfilled to pressure wash the walls inside the tunnel.
The accomplishments here have been no easy task according to a Westchester Field Deputy for Rosendahl. The council office has had to coordinate with five different government agencies: General Services Department, Bureau of Street Lighting, Bureau of Street Services, Caltrans, and Los Angeles World Airports.
