Phase 2 of San Gabriel River Bike Path Realignment Moves Forward

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion to award a construction contract for Phase 2 of the San Gabriel River Bicycle Trail Realignment, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.

Phase 2 of the project will realign and reconstruct 460 feet of the bike path just south of Del Amo Boulevard. Additionally, the existing reclamation waterline and street lights will be relocated and trail signage, yellow centerline striping, and pavement markings will be installed.

“It is important ensure the safety of everyone who utilizes the bike paths along our riverbeds,” said Supervisor Knabe. “These improvements will continue to enhance safety and increase the enjoyment of the residents and visitors who use the San Gabriel River Bike Trail.”

This project is part of a larger capital investment plan that Supervisor Knabe announced during his annual State of the County address on November 4, 2009.  At the event, Supervisor Knabe unveiled over $42 million in Fourth District Capital Projects that would be built in communities across the Fourth District in 2010.
