The famed stretch of Sunset Boulevard has not been re-paved since the 1930s but starting Monday, the city of West Hollywood will begin a re-pavement project.
The City's facelift will replace the old concrete roadway between Sierra Drive and Harper Avenue with rubberized asphalt. Crews will also replace one-third of the strip's sidewalks and make the existing sidewalks more pedestrian-friendly.
New trees will be planted to replace older Ficus which have torn up the sidewalks.
According to the LA Times
, the tab for the 1.6 miles of the Strip will run about $5.4 million, including a little more than $1 million in federal stimulus money.
