The City of Santa Monica’s Airport Avenue is the backbone infrastructure to a larger, decades-long project to convert the existing airport into a community park. Cannon was selected to provide design, survey, and public outreach services for the conversion of Airport Avenue from a two-lane vehicle roadway into a complete and green street with full incorporation of separate pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle travel ways.
The project required difficult and unique design parameters including shared street concepts to increase parking and event space for the Barker Hangar, green infrastructure elements, incorporating water re-use applications with irrigation, and concept intersection improvements at the existing S-curve of Airport Avenue and Walgrove Avenue. Another challenge involved building retaining structures next to the airport without impacting daily operations. The full-service design team included Cannon’s in-house survey, civil, structural, landscape architecture, and electrical teams.Back to Service
