Jefferson Boulevard Reenvisioned

The information on this microsite (upcmasterplan.usc.edu) reflects archival data last updated in 2008. For the most accurate current information on the University Village Specific Plan, please visit village.usc.edu.

Narrowing Jefferson Boulevard is a central element of USC’s Draft Master Plan. The current four-lane street will be converted to two lanes, providing enhanced pedestrian safety and better linkage among university facilities as well as calming traffic and creating a village ambiance.

Heavily traveled Jefferson Boulevard consists of four lanes, plus street parking, with a raised median.

Jefferson Boulevard Street Section: Narrowed Concept

As reenvisioned, Jefferson Boulevard would be narrowed from four to two lanes. This would yield a safer pedestrian environment, help calm traffic and contribute to the development of a village ambiance.

Conceptual Rendering: A Narrower, Safer, More Pedestrian-Friendly Jefferson Boulevard

In combination, the narrowed Jefferson Boulevard and the updated University Village would create a safer, more pedestrian-friendly environment.
