Makeover for Hollyw’d Blvd.

Hollywood Boulevard is getting a $ 4.4 million facelift, officials said Wednesday.

The idea is to pump new glamour into a rundown section of the famous boulevard.

“They’re the first major improvements … since the Walk of Fame in the 1950s ,” said Walter Beaumont, a spokesman for the Community Redevelopment Agency’s Hollywood project office. “Nothing’s been done for 40 years, and it shows.”

The six-month program will include repaving the street, putting in decorative sidewalks and new landscaping.
