Open House: Expo II Bike Path – Northvale Gap Closure

Our June 2018 open house for the Expo II Bike Path – Northvale Gap Closure Project was a big success! Over 50 people came to check out design updates, ask questions, and offer feedback on the project. For those who weren’t able to attend, feel free to look through the PDF of the presentation boards linked below. We are still accepting comments via email – please send to Charlie Ho (charlie.ho@lacity.org) by Friday, July 6th.

Stay tuned for our upcoming post with a summary of community feedback on the project!

Expo Line crossing improvements

new markings

New roadway markings add a limit line and bicycle symbol for the bike lane

LADOT has recently added new roadway markings and signage to help improve a key bicycle crossing along Phase I of the Expo Line bikeway. The crossing occurs where Exposition Blvd. meets Rodeo Road, about 1.2 miles west of the University of Southern California and Expo Park. With the Expo Line expected to open April 28th, biking safely around the transit corridor cannot be stressed enough. When approaching this intersection from the east, be sure to watch for trains and adhere to all traffic and warning signals. If the light is red, be sure to stop behind the limit line (this will position you on-top of a loop detector, which alerts the traffic signal that a bicycle is present). When the train clears and the light turns green, follow the bike lane to cross the Expo Line tracks, which will continue along Exposition Blvd. heading east (check out a video from our ride on the Expo Line bikeway to see how you should navigate the crossing). More pictures of the intersection can be viewed in our flickr set.
