LA River project continues

Our work for the LA River bike path gap closure project has now entered the next phase. We have started working on the preliminary designs for all built structures necessary along the 8-mile stretch of new bicycle path. This includes elevated bicycle paths, underpasses and bridges. The project is located in LA’s most densely built-up area. Existing rail and road infrastructure limits available space and offers massive challenges.

We have been commissioned by Jacobs Engineering Group, who together with Alta Planning + Design, have been appointed by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to deliver on the new bike path.
