On Monday, crews will begin construction on the LA River bike path, extending it further south towards downtown. The 2.5 mile stretch will go from Fletcher Drive to Barclay Street over an asphalt easement previously owned by the Army Corps of Engineers. The current path, running from the northern end of Griffith Park to Fletcher Drive is about 4.25 miles. The project is expected to take 6 to 7 months based on preliminary reports.

A formal breaking ground ceremony will take place on Monday morning with City Council President Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Ed Reyes and representatives from the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority.
