LA River bike path gap closure project preliminary sketch Jacobs ipv Delft

commissioned for LA River project

We have been commissioned by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to develop the architectural design of all bridges required for the LA River Bike Path Gap Closure project. Jacobs Engineering Group and Alta Planning + Design will deliver the project in collaboration with us! We will design all bridge-like structures needed along the new bicycle path.

The Los Angeles River Bike Path Gap Closure Project entails design and construction of a bike path along an eight-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River (River) from Elysian Valley through Downtown Los Angeles to the City of Vernon, closing the longest remaining continuous gap in the Los Angeles River Bike Path.

The project will enhance mobility, provide commute options and access to employment hubs and high-quality transit lines, and provide a safer, more comfortable environment for people biking and walking. When completed, the LA River Path will offer a 32-mile continuous active transportation corridor connecting Long Beach to the San Fernando Valley.

The project is one of the city’s 28 infrastructure projects to be completed before the 2028 Olympics. It is scheduled to break ground in 2023 and complete in 2027.
