Document Description
The proposed Long Beach Police Department Tunnel project would provide an in-custody transfer tunnel capable of moving in-custody pedestrians between the existing Long Beach police Department (400 W. Broadway) and the new State Courthouse (George Deukmejian Courthouse, 505 W. Broadway) currently under construction. An existing in-custody pedestrian transfer tunnel connects the Police Department with the existing State Courthouse located south of the Police Department building. However, this existing tunnel connects the Police Department with the existing State Courthouse located south of the Police Department building. However, this existing tunnel will no longer be used when the State Courthouse changes locations in August of 2013 (the anticipated date that the new State Courthouse would be operational). The proposed tunnel would be constructed of materials similar to the existing tunnel with concrete painted walls, concrete floor, safety lighting and ventilation, and security call boxes and security doors at each end. The proposed tunnel connection between the new State Courthouse (located at the northwest corner of the magnolia Avenue/Broadway intersection) and the Long Beach Police Department (located at the southeast corner of the Magnolia Avenue/Broadway intersection) would be approximately 500 feet in length and would cross under portions of Magnolia Avenue and Broadway.
