News Details
Improving the San Gabriel Bike Trail
Update on the San Gabriel River Trail

Grinding and repaving of the San Gabriel River Bike Trail will occur from Monday, March 19 - Friday, March 23

 

During construction the trail will only be closed during working hours (7:00 to 3:30) and then only the actual part of the trail being worked on will be blocked off.

 

After the trail is repaved it will be re-striped and marked with "mile markers." All work on the trail should be completed by Mid April.

 

Daily details plus the detour routes will be posted on the Bike Long Beach Facebook page and www.bikelongbeach.org

 

If you have questions,  you may contact Bike Coordinator Allan Crawford at 562-570-6618.
