Lincoln Boulevard begins by branching northwest from Sepulveda Boulevard at the northern side of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). It then passes through the Los Angeles districts of Westchester, Playa Vista, and Venice before entering Santa Monica. After crossing Wilshire Boulevard, it then changes from a four-lane thoroughfare to a residential street before terminating at San Vicente Boulevard.
Lincoln is known for high levels of auto traffic during daylight and rush hours. This congestion creates other high levels of traffic on alternate parallel residential streets, such as Walgrove Avenue in Venice.
The portion between its southern terminus at Sepulveda Boulevard and the Santa Monica Freeway (Interstate 10) is signed as part of State Route 1. The portion between Interstate 10 and the Santa Monica Boulevard was original part of State Route 2.
