LA River Bike Path Detour in Effect Through Spring 2016


Crews install scaffolding on the I-5 bridge structure adjacent to the LA River Bike Path. The path will be closed for about six months to keep bicyclists safe while work is underway.

WHAT’S HAPPENING: Closure of a one-mile segment of the Los Angeles River Bike Path.

WHERE: The Los Angeles River Bike Path between Riverside Drive and just south of the SR-134 overcrossing in the City of Los Angeles.

WHEN: The closure will be in effect through spring 2016. Construction and closure schedules are subject to change.

WHY: The bike path in this area passes through an active freeway construction zone where bridge widening is underway. The closure is a safety measure to protect bike path users.

DETOUR: A signed detour is posted that directs bike path users to Zoo Drive and Western Heritage Way. See map below or view the detour on an interactive map here.


ABOUT THE PROJECT: This $116 million project is adding 2.7 miles of carpool lanes in each direction between the SR-134 and Magnolia Boulevard in the cities of Burbank and Glendale. The project will be completed in 2017.
