Elysian Valley L.A. River Walk/Bike Path Newly Striped
November 16, 2010 § 23 Comments
As of yesterday, the Los Angeles River Bike Path through Elysian Valley has new stripes! Creek Freak readers may well be tired of hearing about this project; we’ve covered the project’s history, groundbreaking, detours, new undercrossing at Fletcher Drive, new asphalt, delays, new lights, and even the preliminary marks that preceded the striping. The shared walk and bike path officially opens on Saturday December 4th at 12noon, location to be announced.
It’s been great to see families using this path already. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of ringing my bicycle bell to greet a little girl who unsteadily, lovingly guided by her parents, seemed to be trying out her training-wheels-equiped bike for the first time. Her father reached down and rang her bike bell. Everyone smiled!
