The I-710 Corridor Bike Path Project includes three proposed bike paths that aim to serve bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit users of the LA River, Rio Hondo Bike Trail and Metro’s Blue and Green Line.
Location: Gateway Cities
Phase: Early Planning
Type: Complete Streets
Forecasted Opening: Unknown
Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around, including building three new bike paths along the I-710 Freeway. This project would create new east-west connections to improve access to local transit, residential communities and employment centers. The paths would serve cyclists and pedestrians who live, work and travel within the I-710 Corridor.
The three bike paths under consideration are:
Western Levee Bike Path – A 10-mile bike path from Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach to Imperial Highway in South Gate
Compton Boulevard Bike Path – A two-mile bike path along Compton Boulevard in Compton connecting Martin Luther King Transit Center and the LA River
Terminal Island to Rio Hondo Bike Path – A seven-mile bike path from Terminal Island Freeway in Long Beach to the Rio Hondo Bike Trail at Garfield Avenue in South Gate
Metro is in the preliminary phase of studying these bike paths and seeking public input. Final design and construction dates for this project will depend on funding availability.
