Document Description
The LA River Path Project (Project) is a proposed walking and bicycling path along an approximately 8-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River from Elysian Valley through downtown Los Angeles and the City of Vernon to the City of Maywood. The proposed pedestrian and bicycle path would provide connections to and between downtown Los Angeles, including the Arts District, Little Tokyo, Civic Center, El Pueblo District/Union Station, and the Wholesale Heights, Chinatown, and Boyle Heights; and the cities of Vernon and Maywood. The surrounding area is currently underserved with limited pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure connecting the communities. (Continued on separate page)
