Lincoln Boulevard (Southern California)

 

Lincoln Boulevard (Southern California)

Lincoln Boulevard is a major northwest/southeast thoroughfare near the Pacific Coast in Los Angeles County in the U.S. state of California. It starts at San Vicente Boulevard in Santa Monica, stretches southward as a residential street but becomes a four lane thoroughfare after Wilshire Boulevard. Lincoln Boulevard ends near Los Angeles International Airport, stretching over eight miles (13 km) in total. The portion between the Santa Monica Freeway (Interstate 10) and its southern terminus at Sepulveda Boulevard is signed as part of State Route 1. The portion between Santa Monica Boulevard and the 10 was original part of State Route 2.

After Pacific Coast Highway meets Interstate 10, Lincoln Boulevard is the main route to go south along the Pacific Coast in Los Angeles. It passes through the communities of Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey, Playa Vista, and Westchester. Major landmarks include the Ballona Wetlands and Loyola Marymount University.

Lincoln is notorious for high levels of auto traffic during daylight and rush hours. This congestion creates other high levels of traffic on alternate residential streets, such as Walgrove in Venice.

Santa Monica Transit line 3 and Rapid 3 operate on Lincoln Boulevard.
