According to the Living New Deal, a University of California-Berkeley project that catalogs New Deal projects still in use today, some New Deal projects in Los Angeles and the surrounding area include:

  • Aliso Street Bridge
  • Arroyo Seco Parkway
  • Bundy Drive
  • First and Glendale Viaduct
  • Griffith Park Observatory Astonomers' Monument
  • Los Angeles City College
  • Reservoir and Waste System
  • Thomas Jefferson Middle School
  • Mulholland Drive Bridge
  • Los Angeles International Airport
  • Los Angeles Federal Courthouse
  • Numerous storm drains, sewage systems, sidewalks, and other utilities and public works
  • Los Angeles Post Office Terminal Annex

Most of these projects were undertaken by either the Public Works Administration or the Works Progress Administration. There are also a number of murals in public buildings, including post offices and the courthouses, that were commissioned under the WPA.
