Slauson Avenue is a major east–west thoroughfare for southern part of Los Angeles County, California, named for the land developer and Los Angeles Board of Education member J. S. (Jonathan Sayer) Slauson. It passes through Culver City, Ladera Heights, View Park-Windsor Hills, Baldwin Hills, City of Inglewood, South Los Angeles, Huntington Park, Maywood, Commerce, Montebello, Pico Rivera, Whittier, and Santa Fe Springs. It starts at Jefferson Boulevard near the Fox Hills Mall in Culver City and ends at Santa Fe Springs Road, where it becomes Mulberry Drive.
The eastern terminus of the State Route 90, the Marina Freeway, is at Slauson Avenue. In Downtown Los Angeles, the street is south of Washington Boulevard and Vernon Avenue, but north of Gage Avenue and Florence Avenue.
Slauson Avenue is also famous for a former Bethlehem Steel mill located on the 3300 block. At one time Slauson Avenue was a center for urban heavy industry in Los Angeles; the ATSF Harbor Subdivision trolley car once ran along Slauson Avenue. It is also known for the Simply Wholesome Vegetarian restaurant and the historic Jet Inn motor hotel.
