Hyperion Bridge Redesign Meeting

From LACBC News Letter

Atwater: Do you live/work/play in Atwater Village? Do you use the Hyperion/Glendale corridor to get around?
Caltrans and the City of LA will be hosting a community meeting to discuss their plans to rehabilitate the Hyperion bridge over river/freeway. Unfortunately their plans do NOT include bike lanes, even though the bridge is being widened and the 2010 Bicycle Master Plan calls for bike lanes on the bridge.

Hyperion/Glendale Bridge Meeting
When: Wednesday, September 25, 6:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where:Friendship Auditorium, 3201 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027
See Facebook event to spread the word.

Anyone who has ridden on Glendale (or would like to) realizes the importance of a dedicated lane on this stretch where traffic moves so fast, especially as you are heading westbound towards Silver Lake. With the new addition of bike lanes on Glendale, bike lanes on the bridge will be an important next step.

The EIR document states, "The shoulder would facilitate a bicycle route as a transportation element in the 2010 Bicycle Plan." They go on to say, "though the proposed project will not include a bicycle lane on Hyperion Avenue, the project is consistent with the plan because cyclists can use the shoulder."

If you're looking for all the details, here is the notice about the community meeting: Here is the full EIR document:
