New Elysian Valley Bike Path

Today, I attended a groundbreaking for the new Elysian Valley Bike Path. Situated along the west bank of the Los Angeles River from Fletcher Drive to Barclay Street, the path extends to a total distance of eight miles.

The path has existed as a walkway for several decades, but this project, which will be completed at the end of the year, will improve the pathway with a new smooth surface, lighting, traffic markings, signs, and new landscaping.

This path will make biking a safer and easier transportation option for Angelenos, and I encourage Elysian Valley residents, river advocates, and bike enthusiasts to take advantage of this terrific new community resource and to enjoy the outdoors.
