A Multi-Modal Transportation Mobility System

The Arroyo Group of Pasadena is tasked with a project aimed at the  Revitalization of Downtown Inglewood area in Los Angeles before the new Rams NFL stadium is completely built in 2019. We were challenged to study the downtown area and design an Advanced Transportation Solution to link the Crenshaw metro station to the Forum and the upcoming NFL Stadium in Inglewood.

The City of Champions

Inglewood is well known as the City of Champions. It all started with the 1932 Olympic Marathon Race coming through The city and three of Inglewood High School’s alumni becoming Olympic winners. Since then Inglewood is known for the Hollywood Park Horse Race track and the Los Angeles Rams. The Forum was built in the late 60s and became home of the LA Lakers, Kings Hockey team, and Tennis by the strings. History was made and Inglewood has a rich heritage. . .

. . . But today, a lot has changed!


Community input is being encouraged and incorporated into the redevelopment planning process, but there are still people in the community who don’t know about the project and don’t feel involved. This uncertainty about the redevelopment project and its impact on the community is causing them to be fearful of the Government. There is a general Distrust that exist among the locals against their City Government.

How can we put Inglewood back on the map?
