Negative Declaration (NG-11-122-BE), Council District 14. The proposed project is located on Olympic Boulevard between Mateo Street and Santa Fe Avenue and Mateo Street between Olympic Boulevard and Porter Street. The Los Angeles River is approximately 0.36 mile east of the project site. The proposed project consists of property acquisition and street widening. The City of Los Angeles proposes to widen westbound Olympic Boulevard between Mateo Street and Santa Fe Avenue for right turn lane, and northbound Mateo Street between Olympic Boulevard and Porter Street for increased curb return to improve freeway access. Prior to construction, the City would acquire and demolish the building at 2301-2303 Olympic Boulevard, APN 5167001038. The building to be acquired is currently not in use. The adjacent building located at 1530 – 1534 Mateo Street is currently being used as a fork lift repair and rental business. This structure will remain standing. The project site is within the South Industrial Area and the Alameda Corridor Project, which is intended to facilitate access to the ports. The proposed project would improve access to the Santa Monica Freeway and thus improve traffic circulation along Olympic Blvd.
