The Hollywood Walk of Fame will be getting an upgrade.

Construction is set to begin in 2023, according to a press release by Councilmember Mitch O' Farrell.

"For three years, most of it during an unprecedented global pandemic, we've been working to bring transformative improvements to the Hollywood Walk of Fame," O' Farrell said.

Some of the improvements will include:

  • conversion of most of the parking lane on Hollywood Boulevard into an expanded pedestrian zone
  • street furnishing including tables and chairs
  • bus shelters, bicycle racks, and transit kiosks
  • planters and landscaping
  • bus boarding platforms
  • consolidated bus stops

The plan also includes more space for activities like sidewalk vending, temporary art installations, and music and culture performances.

The LA Metro Board of Directors awarded $7.2 million in funding to go towards improvements on Hollywood Boulevard in January 2021.

The City’s partnership with Metro will bring to life beautifully designed improvements, centered around pedestrians and transit riders, to the heart of Hollywood, said O'Ferell.
