"Annoying but necessary"
There’s a lot of everything on Lincoln Blvd: drugstores, grocery stores, restaurants, shops, schools, houses, mechanics – anything you can think of. Plus it’s technically a California highway, and a major route to get from the 90 freeway and Marina Del Rey to Venice to Santa Monica and the 10 freeway. Unfortunately, there seems to be traffic on Lincoln at almost every hour of the day, the lights are timed badly, and it’s one of the uglier streets in West LA. Therefore, as important of a street it is for Venice and Santa Monica residents and passerby, it’s never a very pleasant street to be on.
