Marvin Braude Bike Trail Project Set to Begin

The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works is set to begin work on a project to rehabilitate and improve the Marvin Braude Bike Trail.

The popular bike trail winds its way along the coast from Will Rogers State Park in Los Angeles, through the cities of Santa Monica, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach, to Torrance County Beach in Torrance.

Phase I of the project includes the reconstruction of about two miles of asphalt and concrete sections of the trail and the sealing of other segments along a five-mile stretch from 45th Street to 1st Street in Manhattan Beach, and from Torrance Boulevard to Calle Miramar in Redondo Beach.

Trail users are advised that weekday access may be limited in Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach within project construction zones, which will not exceed more than 1,000 feet in length. Detour signs will be posted to assist bicyclists and others in avoiding the construction zones. There will be no construction activity or closures on the weekends and the bike trail will be open.

The $410,000 project is being funded by the Fourth Supervisorial District Capital Improvement Funds. It is expected to be completed by the end of November.
