GETTING TO SCMI FROM THE 110 HARBOR FREEWAY

Take the 110 Harbor freeway south towards San Pedro. Exit at Rt. 47, the Vincent Thomas Bridge. Cross the bridge and exit at Ferry Street (the first exit coming down off the bridge), and turn left (onto Ferry) at the signal. Turn right onto Terminal Way (second signal). After one signal and two stop signs, the road curves left and becomes Seaside Avenue. After the curve, you’ll see water on the left, after which SCMI is the first building, a tan two-story with a reddish fence along the street. Public parking is on the street (east side only).

Cross the bridge, continuing on Ocean Blvd then exit at Ferry Street about 3 miles (just before the Vincent Thomas bridge, which you don’t want to cross). The offramp will turn left under the bridge onto Ferry Street. Continue on Ferry, and at the third signal turn right onto Terminal Way. After one signal and two stop signs, the road curves left and becomes Seaside Avenue. After the curve, you’ll see water on the left, after which SCMI is the first building, a tan two-story with a reddish fence along the street. Public parking is on the street (east side only)
