Interstate 405 Improvement Project (SR 73- I 605)

The Project will improve 16 miles and included adding one regular lane of traffic in each direction from Euclid Street to I-605 and making improvements to freeway entrances, exits and bridges. New express lanes (two lanes in each direction) were also constructed incorporating the existing carpool lanes and connectors. As the Landscape Architect, LCI delivered conceptual and final design for the landscape and irrigation components for the length of the project. Field support for arborist services was also provided to better integrate the proposed and existing trees to mitigate environmental requirements.

This facility in Huntington Beach is an innovative training center that develops the learning and technical skills of both cadets and students by providing an environment that best balance quality enhancements of both building design and landscape.

LCI achieved this goal by creating a park scenario for passive recreation, biddle and grinder courses for physical training activities and memorial as a focal point next to the building’s main entry. A number of prominent trees were protected through strict construction and management procedures while applicable stormwater techniques such as Modular Wetland Biofiltration systems were considered for the project.
