SAN PEDRO, Calif. - October 5, 2017 - The Port of Los Angeles has announced it will transition into phase three of the Harbor Boulevard Roadway Improvements Project - a reconfigured three-way intersection at Harbor Boulevard and Sampson Way in San Pedro - on the night of Monday, October 9.

The focal point of the third phase includes a modified traffic route, specifically rerouting the current traffic flow along Harbor Boulevard to the new three-way intersection along Harbor Boulevard/Sampson Way with direct access into Ports O’ Call Village. Other key elements in this phase include lane reductions along Harbor Boulevard/Sampson Way, plus two new street closures.

After October 9, the Los Angeles Maritime Museum and Acapulco Restaurant are only accessible via 6th Street and Sampson Way - now a cul-de-sac that no longer connects to the Ports O’ Call Village parking lot. A closure on 7th Street, from Beacon Street to Harbor Boulevard, is also in effect as construction continues at the main 7th Street intersection.

The Port of Los Angeles began construction of the Harbor Boulevard Roadway Improvements Project in December 2016. The third phase is expected to be completed by Spring 2018, with the final project wrapping up by the end of Summer 2018. The street realignment is in preparation for the planned San Pedro Public Market, slated to open in 2020 at the current Ports O’ Call Village site on the LA Waterfront.
