Los Angeles River Valley Bikeways and Greenways

The LA River Valley Bikeways and Greenways Project’s goal is to design and construct approximately 13 miles of new bath path and greenway facilities along the LA River in San Fernando Valley (SFV), which complement projects that have already been built or are underway by closing critical gaps in the public transportation system. 

Engineering is currently completing the Feasibility Study for the project. The Feasibility Study’s tasks include right of way identification, utility coordination, bike path ad greenway alignment alternatives, drainage (biofiltration and biorientation systems), envision analyses, as-built drawings, preliminary CEQA/NEPA documentation, coordination with other segments in design and construction, cost analysis, and strategic phasing of design, bid/award, and striation. It will provide a comprehensive analysis of the alternatives for the River bikeway, including major street and bridge crossings, the integration with the existing on-street bike lanes, and a visual vocabulary for the new construction.
