LOS ANGELES – California will invest more than ১৫ 15 million in projects to improve transportation along the Los Angeles River, officials announced Sept. 2.
“The LA River is an iconic destination for the people of this region – and these investments demonstrate the strength of our alliance to take action to realize its full potential,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti.
“I would like to thank the members of the Assembly [Laura] Friedman to champion this part of our historic historic waterway, which will give Angelinos and visitors better access to green spaces, as well as more space for walking and biking.
The fund includes $ 10 million to complete the Glendale-Los Angeles Garden River Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge, which will create a connection between Glendale and Griffith Park bike paths.
The remaining িয়ন 5 million will establish an integral undercross to create a path for active transportation users on the North Atwater East Bank of the river. Once the project is completed, pedestrians, cyclists and riders will be able to enter the park, riding facilities, the surrounding area, business and creation areas.
“It’s hard to overestimate the importance of investing in my district’s active transportation infrastructure,” Friedman said. “In 43rd place are incredible community facilities like Griffith Park, LA River Bike Path, Chandler Bike Path and Descanso Garden. However, many of our neighborhoods and business districts do not have the necessary access to realize the true potential of this community resource.
“By connecting the wealth of our district and providing alternative ways for people to move around, we are providing an improved way of life not only for our residents, but for the entire region. I am very grateful for the partnership that has developed in this endeavor, and look forward to continuing to work with Los Angeles and Glendale to make this region’s vision a reality.
