LA Metro Breaks Ground On Bike And Pedestrian Path Through South LA
Los Angeles County’s public transit agency broke ground Wednesday on a bike and pedestrian path that — when completed in 2024* — will provide car-free mobility options between Inglewood and the east side of South L.A. and access to transit along the way.
L.A. Metro’s Rail to Rail Active Transportation Project will create dedicated walking and two-way cycling lanes separated from street traffic. The path is being built on top of an old freight rail line owned by Metro.
The 5.5-mile route will create connections between Metro’s A (Blue) Line Slauson Station, the Silver Line rapid bus station at the 110 Freeway and Slauson Avenue, and the future Fairview Heights station on the K (Crenshaw/LAX) Line, which the agency expects will open this fall .
Agency officials said the $140 million project will feature “extensive landscaping,” with hundreds of drought-tolerant plants and trees to provide shade. It will also include benches, lighting, security cameras and emergency call boxes.
A second segment of the path, dubbed the Rail to River project , is still in the planning stages. It would extend the bike and walking path from the Slauson A Line station further east to the L.A. River, passing through or near the cities of Huntington Park, Vernon, Maywood and Bell.
* The path might be slated to open in 2024, but as with many Metro projects and services, delays are very possible.
The location in East Hollywood is the fourth official crosswalk to replace Crosswalk Collective LA's "unauthorized" efforts. Other DIY crosswalks have been removed by city officials.

If you’ve ever seen a street name that has multiple versions like drive, place and road, this one’s for you. It makes little sense now, but there’s an old reason for it.
The goal is to reduce the often inequitable police enforcement of crossing the street. In Los Angeles, nearly a third of citations each year are written to Black pedestrians, who make up about 9% of the city’s population.
