Santa Monica officials are planning to enhance a sixth-mile stretch of Ocean Park Boulevard into a street friendly to both people on all modes of transportation and the environment, according to the Santa Monica Daily Press. Calling it a "complete green street," the artery between Lincoln Boulevard and Neilson Way will next year see pedestrian crosswalks, "extended curbs, wider bike lanes and medians with more green space."

Additionally, landscaping along sidewalks is expected to help reduce the effects of stormwater runoff by capturing it before it goes into the Santa Monica Bay. The project's cost is $4.5 million.
