Expo Northvale Bicycle Path

Please join the Los Angeles Department of Transportation’s Bicycle Program for a community meeting to discuss the design and development of the Exposition Boulevard Bicycle Path’s Northvale Segment.  The meeting will be held at 7 PM on Tuesday, September 24th, at the Palms Rancho Park Community Library located at 2920 Overland Avenue (http://www.lapl.org/branches/palms-rancho-park).

This initial meeting will provide an overview of the all the Expo Bike Path segments in the area and allow the community to provide preliminary input on the segment to be designed and constructed between Motor Avenue and Overland Avenue, parallel to Phase II of Metro’s Exposition Line.

Design funding for the Northvale segment of the bicycle path has been released and the design process is expected to take approximately one year.  This meeting will serve to identify the community’s wishes for the project and will help influence the design process as it proceeds through survey, preliminary design and the final design stages prior to bid, award and construction.  While additional meetings will be held, input gathered from this event will greatly determine the direction of the initial design processes. Your participation is strongly encouraged.

For additional information about the meeting, please contact the Los Angeles Department of Transportation’s Bicycle Program at  (213) 972-4972.
