L.A. River Bike Path Repairs Beginning Soon

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation will be initiating repairs to the L.A. River Bike Path between Fletcher Dr. and Barclay St. (2.4 miles).

LADOT expects work to begin in late September and continue for approximately one month, during which at least one side of the bike path will remain open for use.

Repairs and improvements will include

·         Over 100 sand crack patches

·         Slurry seal to cover smaller cracks along the stretch

·         Full replacement of asphalt paving in several locations

·         Tree root removals

·         Possible tree trimming

As a reminder, the L.A. River Bike Path is a shared path. To ensure safety for everyone, people riding bikes on the path must yield to pedestrians. For questions, please contact: bike.program@lacity.org.

    Wonderful news! Any update regarding the end of the detour at Los Feliz Boulevard? The project documents originally stated the re-opening would occur on October 15, 2018 but there have not been any updates posted since April 2018. Thank you.

      Hi Moel!
      The detour at Los Feliz Blvd is due to a bridge construction project that is managed through the Bureau of Engineering. We are waiting confirmation, but as far as we know it is on schedule to re-open in mid-October.

    There are so many agencies involved in the various construction projects along the LA River, with no central lead agency putting out good clean communication to the public, that it is not surprising the public is frustrated. This valuable resource for the people of LA has been off line much too much during the last years. Given the lack of good information, city public works like the LA River bike path are ceded to our ever growing population of people with no housing.
