The LA River Path Project is a new bicycle and pedestrian path along an approximately eight-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River from Elysian Valley through Downtown Los Angeles to the City of Maywood.
Location: Central Los Angeles
Phase: Environmental Review
Type: Complete Streets
Forecasted Opening: 2027
Metro is making it easier to get around with an eight-mile shared-use bicycle and pedestrian path along the LA River between Elysian Valley and the City of Maywood, through downtown Los Angeles and the City of Vernon. This project will close the gap in the LA River Path, creating a safe, efficient active transportationtravel option connecting the San Fernando Valley and Long Beach.
The Metro team anticipates releasing the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in Spring 2023. As we continue to study the project, we will provide an update on more opportunities for public engagement as they become available, including the release of the Draft EIR and public hearings.
