Marina Drive Receives New Bike Lanes

8th May

Long Beach Public Works extended another bikeway connection to Orange County this week with the completion of the Marina Drive Slurry Seal Project. Bike lanes had previously existed on Marina Drive between 2nd Street and Studebaker Road, but stopped short of the city limit.

Cyclists can now continue into Seal Beach from Long Beach (and vice versa) with newly striped Class II bike lanes. The project upgraded the roadway with patch and crack sealing work, a new slurry coat of asphalt, and also features a buffer between the bike lane and vehicle lane where Marina Drive curves near its intersection with Studebaker Road.

Check out photos of Marina Drive before, during, and after the project:












Minor Construction Activities on the San Gabriel River Trail

In the coming weeks you may notice cones and warning signs placed on the San Gabriel Bike Path, just south of the 7th Street overcrossing. Los Angeles County Public Works is conducting activities to improve the levee underneath the bike path. Please exercise caution when passing the cone zone, and be mindful of opposing traffic. This area has a paved shoulder, so there should still be plenty of room for two bicycles to pass one another comfortably.
