TERRA developed a landscape plan in the right-of-way (ROW) of Torrence, 130th and South Brainard Avenue. Planting was introduced along environmental walls, retaining walls and parkway boulevards.
A mixed-use path for bicycle and pedestrian from South Brainard and adjacent South Torrence was designed to accommodate trees, shrubs and perennials, providing year-round interest. Wide, landscaped roadway medians were introduced, offering a visual separation of traffic.
At the intersection of South Torrence and East 130th, the four open landscape spaces provide a natural buffer to adjacent residences and reduce the impact of the retaining walls. This was accomplished by introducing tree masses and plantings on the sloped terraces.
To date, the project has been closely coordinated with CDOT and the Mayor’s office.
