Roadway Investments

NBCUniversal invests in many significant roadway improvements within the communities surrounding our property. We understand congestion is a problem throughout the region, and we remain committed to improving traffic flow in and around our property.

As part of our proactive approach to help manage traffic and ease congestion, we created a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan, which was submitted and approved by Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) prior to issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy for the new immersive theme parkland that opened in 2016.
