Slauson Avenue

Slauson & I-110 Metro Silver Line Station.

Slauson Avenue is a major east–west thoroughfare for southern Los Angeles County, California, named for the land developer and Los Angeles Board of Education member J. S. Slauson. It passes through Culver City, Ladera Heights, View Park-Windsor Hills, Baldwin Hills, Inglewood, South Los Angeles, Huntington Park, Maywood, Commerce, Montebello, Pico Rivera, Whittier, and Santa Fe Springs. It starts at Jefferson Boulevard near the Fox Hills Mall in Culver City and ends at Santa Fe Springs Road, where it becomes Mulberry Drive.

There are two major transit stations (one light rail and one bus rapid transit) on Slauson Avenue. They include the Slauson Station of the Metro Blue Line and the Slauson/I-110 Station of the Metro Silver Line. Both stations are elevated above ground. Metro Local lines 108 and 358 operate on Slauson Avenue.

The eastern terminus of the State Route 90, the Marina Freeway, is at Slauson Avenue.

Slauson is also famous for a former Bethlehem Steel mill located on the 3300 block. At one time Slauson Avenue was a center for urban heavy industry in Los Angeles; the ATSF Harbor Subdivision once ran along Slauson Avenue.

In downtown Los Angeles, the street is south of Washington Boulevard and Vernon Avenue, but north of Gage Avenue and Florence Avenue.
