Reimagining Los Angeles Second Street Tunnel With Light 2

Signify Revamps LA 2nd Street Tunnel with Light

Oct. 20, 2021
Dubbed the most recognizable city landmark that most Americans have never heard of, Los Angeles' 2nd Street Tunnel recently underwent a major lighting upgrade.

Dubbed the most recognizable city landmark that most Americans have never heard of, Los Angeles' 2nd Street Tunnel has been featured in a variety of music videos and movies, making it a well-known landmark. It recently underwent a major lighting upgrade with Signify's Color Kinetics and Lumec solutions, blending the city's historical lighting with dramatic color on the west end of the tunnel. 

Signify teamed up with Forman & Associates to create the light display. It is designed to boost local engagement, such as celebrate sporting team victories or holidays. Additionally, Signify helped create lighting for the city's day-to-day traffic flow and operations with its Lumec Tunnelview and Renaissance LED pendant to illuminate the open, Figueroa side of the tunnel. Together, the fixtures give the tunnel a vintage LA aesthetic, while improving the safety and coverage of the tunnel.
