Alex Baum Bridge re-dedication ceremony this Thursday (You’re invited!)

Alex Baum Bicycle Bridge

Making way for the new plaque to be installed

On Thursday, from 11 to 12 p.m. LADOT and Council member Tom LaBonge will be re-dedicating the Alex Baum Bicycle Bridge in a ceremony from 11 to 12 at the bridge, located above Los Feliz Blvd. The dedication ceremony will showcase new bronze plaques (unveiled earlier this year at the Blessing of the Bicycles) honoring Alex Baum and his role in promoting bicycling in Los Angeles (just in time for his birthday.) Parking will be limited so we are encouraging attendees to bike, take transit or carpool to the ceremony. Join in the celebration to get a first-hand look at the plaques and a chance to hear guest speakers honor Alex’s accomplishments and L.A’s long bicycling history.

Please note, that the bicycle bridge will be closed to bicyclists from 10:30 to 11:30 for the purpose of the ceremony. A clearly signed detour will be available for bicyclists passing through the area at this time.

The Alex Baum Bicycle Bridge, spans 120 feet over Los Felix Blvd. at the Los Angeles River and Interstate 5. The bridge was constructed by LADOT in 2002 in conjunction with the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission and Bureau of Engineering (BOE) . The bridge features a beautiful bicycle spoke and rim design including two 24 foot diameter wheel rims that grace either entrance. Join us for this celebration of the accomplishments and legacy of a local, longtime bicycle advocate.
